The Friends by Maggie Iribarne
A party, a prank, and a dear friend passed away: "The Friends" by Maggie Nerz Iribarne celebrates and mourns a friendship through awkward laughter and silent tears.
Maggie Nerz Iribarne is a lifelong writer of journals, poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, memoir, and essays. She is happiest with a blank journal and a new pen in hand. A lucky and grateful woman in all ways, she gets to work as a writing tutor at Le Moyne College and practices her craft on the third-floor attic of her home in Syracuse, New York.
In November 2020 her short story, “Sick, but Sociable,” appeared in Malarkey Books’ anthology, What I thought of Ain’t Funny (http://malarkeybooks.com/what-i-thought-of-aint-funny).
