Margaret Eaton

My short story, “Good Jordy Good,” was a finalist for Southwest Review’s 2013 David Nathan Meyerson Fiction Prize, judged by Ben Fountain.

It was published in Michigan Quarterly Review in the Spring of 2014.

“Apartment Mom,” snagged an honorable mention in New Millennium Writings’ short-short fiction contest and was published by Grey Sparrow Journal.

The Review Review included a nice word about one of my flash pieces in its review of The Quotable:

“Also quite moving is the selection of nonfiction here. There are only two pieces, one of which is the flash essay, “The Trees Would Know” by Margaret Eaton. Interestingly, this dark, haunting, memoir essay is written in third person, unlike most of the fiction.

“Hounding Me,” a story about a cleaning woman and her dog was picked as a good find on the web by FictionDaily, it was published in Rumble.
