Dust Devil Revival

Shortly after taking on the managing editor position of the Tucson Weekly after working as staff writer for more than six years, a reader suggested in an email that we consider bringing back a long-ago section of the paper called Dust Devil.

Nowadays we call it flash fiction and since its return to the Tucson Weekly pages, we've never run short thanks to readers (some repeater offenders) who get creative with words now and again and send us 70 words of poetry and fiction. This is a belated thank-up to everyone who has participated thus far. I loved how this week's Dust Devil arrived in the regular mail accompanied with a kind note, but you can also send your Dust Devil in by email to mari@tucsonlocalmedia.com.

My favorites have been those pieces of fiction that reflect the heart of Tucson and those that go against tradition, but we honestly publish almost everything you've sent us. Other readers not so inclined to take up a flash-fiction have let us know it's one of those quick reads they go to when the first pick up the paper. Keep them coming, and again, thank you for being part of this Dust Devil revival.

    The pendulum swung, Mari tells the kid, but this time it went too far and we have to speak out for our friends.
