Nonfiction Story Up at Twist in Time Magazine

My nonfiction story about an important little house in my past was published in the new issue of Twist in Time Magazine. Thank you to editor Renee Firer.

And guess what? Merril Smith has two poems in the issue, too!

You can find my story here:

The Changing House

The issue with Merril’s poems and some other excellent pieces is here:

Twist in Time Magazine Issue 9

Here is a photo of The Changing House itself in  its very first manifestation.

And here is a photo I took of some of the neighborhood kids with my little camera. My brother is in this pic, second from our left.

  1. Wonderful story, Luanne–and I love these photos, too!

  2. I’m still smiling about the different uses this little house was put to. Great story, Luanne.

  3. What a great story, Luanne! Congratulations! I love the photographs, too. Yay Merril!

  4. Great picture and story, too!! Fun to see both you and Merrill in the same magazine!

  5. Congratulations, Luanne. A fascinating story. And you are in good company 🙂

  6. I’m glad to get to see the little house.

  7. Wonderful slice of childhood!

  8. Congratulations on the publication of “The Changing House,” Luanne! The opening line should go down in the CNF canon as one of the best of all time. As to your playhouse, my childhood self would have said, “Oh, you lucky bum!” Again, congratulations, and many, many thanks for the day-brightener. I needed it.

  9. Congratulations! Love the photos too 🙂

  10. So cool, Luanne! Looks so sweet; I’ll read it first chance!! How do you find these magazines?!

  11. What a great memory And story, Luanne. It brought up all kinds of memories for me as well. Although I did not have my own playhouse that I always wanted, my neighbor had one that looked like an authentic tiny home. Lots of shenanigans took place in there, too. Her age was in between mine and my older sister’s, so we often fought for her friendship and the tiny house. I love the accompanying photos. Congratulations on a great story being published!

    • Thanks, Cheryl! I’m glad your neighbor had a playhouse. Every neighborhood just needs maybe one playhouse ;). When I was in kindergarten, my grandmother babysat me at her house, and there was a playhouse up the street. It was much more elaborate than mine. It even had gingerbread on it and a Dutch door. I loved that house. Maybe it inspired my dad to build the one he did for me five years later. I would love to read about the shenanigans that took place in your neighborhood playhouse hahahaha.

  12. Congratulations, Luanne!

    I hope your cousin’s son is doing better.

    • Thank you, Lavinia. He’s still in bad shape, but there was a tiny improvement in something, so we’re taking that for now. Thank you so much for your good wishes.

  13. Congratulations, Luanne. That’s a lovely story and the photos are wonderful. 🙂
