Yet again: At the beginning of June, a handfull (2-4) pieces from short stories, novels, poetry, and other things will be spotlighted in a thread in the Site News forum (just like last month). In addition to the main writing forums, stuff in the thread box prose or one of the threadbox poems are eligible.

Did you read anything on the forum that stopped you, made you think, impressed you? Is there a piece from this month that deserves more attention? Post a link to anything posted by someone else during the month of May, 2013. I (and probably some of the other mods) will use those suggestions and our own favorite pieces to put together the spotlight. Any and all help on this front is appreciated, especially for the prose forums - I know there's good work out there, but I haven't read it yet.

Bump. I could still use some suggestions, particularly in the short stories and novels forums.

I don't know about the other pieces, but mine was posted ages ago - and the point of this spotlight is to make us pay attention to things posted specifically in may.

I suggest this.
