Book'em: Brianna Van Dyke

NCW special agents apprehended the following the agents, editors and authors as they prepared to steal time away to present at the Northern Colorado Writers Conference April 3-4.

Case #8

Suspect: Brianna Van Dyke (Editor for Ruminate magazine)

Alias: editor-in-chief

Location: Fort Collins

Apprehended: while editing Ruminate's Issue 12

“Clue” to favorite writing spot: in bed with a hot cup of tea and a stack of inspiring books

Known to be involved with writing: a current essay in response to walking labyrinths at monasteries throughout Colorado.

Last seen autographing: the latest issue of Ruminate’s Issue 11: Passages

Spotted recently: thanking Bret Lett for judging the recent Ruminate Short Story Prize

Often seen: making lists of possible themes for upcoming magazine issues (while also trying to occupy a rambunctious three-year-old)

Recently found enjoying a query letter: that revealed a writer who read the submission guidelines and the magazine before submitting

Known to delete a query because: the submission document was a bizarre and unreadable mutation of a Microsoft Word file

Wishes more freelance writers: would read the submission guidelines

Overuses this written word: so

Addictions: anything by Annie Dillard and a cold pint of Odell’s IPA
