Mari Adkins - Editor

Overview

I am a southern gothic fiction writer who grew up in the coal mining community of Woodbine in southeastern Kentucky. My poetry, short stories, and other writing to date have appeared in the e-zines associated with the now-defunct 3Sides Literary Agency, the limited Stories from the Red Light District anthology, in various projects associated with Apex Publications, and in the Help anthology. I've worked as a book reviewer and professional copy editor for the last ten years.
