Please note that this story includes racial violence against Black people and references to slavery.

Joelle Wellington grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where her childhood was spent wandering the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Her love of the written word led her to a B.A. in Creative Writing and International Studies. When she isn’t writing, she’s reading and when she’s not doing that, she’s attempting to bake bread with varying degrees of success. She is represented by Quressa Robinson of Nelson Literary Agency.

This month's narrator is Angela Naomi. Angela is a Los Angeles-based actress. She is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where she earned a BA in Sociology. The years in between college and her move to LA were spent teaching dance, acting, and pageant coaching along with performing in musical theater and modeling.  She also worked as a social media marketer for small businesses around the world. Angela served in the US Navy Reserves as a Corpsman then a recruiter. Often mistaken for an extrovert, she’s an introvert whose most cherished moments are spent with her family and close friends.

Apex Magazine Editor Q&A #2

por Apex Magazine

Writing is a challenging task. A profession for some, a hobby for others. Regardless, there is often a shared sense of helplessness when it comes to matters such as who is published, why they're published, and the processes behind those decisions.

It is with these three questions in mind (who/why/how) that we subject our short fiction editorial team to your questions and force them to answer on livestream! Join Jason Sizemore, Lesley Conner, and Maurice Broaddus for a live Apex Magazine event—Apex Magazine Editor Q&A, hosted by Beth Dawkins!

Remember to check out the Apex Magazine Kickstarter page, running until August 18, 2021.

Behind Her, Trailing Like Butterfly Wings

Daniela Tomova was born in the ruins of countless civilizations and experienced first-hand yet another empire fall when she was only 8 years old. Her surreal, animal-filled childhood lives in stories which, while true, have nonetheless earned her the nickname Keyser Söze. She left her home country to study business at the Ohio State University and soon enough, she found herself peddling data around Europe just to make a living. 

Daniela draws her inspiration from the visceral folklore of the Balkans, the surrealism of Russian science fiction, the dreams of Ray Bradbury and the delirious, severe beauty of Northern Norway. 

She lives in an abandoned airport in Oslo, Norway with her partner and their cat.
