Her piece about the 1871 Peshtigo fire, “Mrs. Williamson Winds the Watch,” was published in Indiana Review‘s summer 2014 issue as a finalist for the magazine’s “Half-K” prize, while other flash fiction pieces appeared in The Collagist and Monkeybicycle. Another story, “Exercises for Printing and Writing,” was published in Digital Americana as a finalist for that publication’s “501-Word Fiction” prize. Meacham’s flash non-fiction appeared in Carve magazine and in Superstition Review, which also features a vodcast (http://superstitionreview.asu.edu/blog/2014/09/02/sr-podvod-series-writer-rebecca-meacham/) of Meacham reading the piece at iTunes U. Meacham was also interviewed at the blogs for The Collagist, Monkeybicycle, and New Delta Review upon the publication of her 2013-14 award-winning flash fiction chapbook, Morbid Curiosities. In June, her story “Beached” was long listed for Wigleaf journal‘s Top 200 Very Short Fictions of 2014.
