Writefest 2017 was a wonderful week packed with inspiring workshops and fascinating panels. Heartfelt gratitude to Layla Al-Bedawi and Holly Walrath for organizing the conference, and to all the volunteers who kept things humming along. I was honored to present an authors’ chat with flash fiction legend Kathy Fish! Skilled, modest, and creative, she offered helpful ideas and insights. She empowered me to experiment more with hybrid forms of flash fiction.
Reading my flash fiction at Cafe Brasil was also more fun than scary. The talented Julia Rios also read, and now I want to discover more of her work. Writer (and positive force in the universe) Jody T. Morse helped me woman the Spider Road Press booth during the Literary Journal and Publisher Fair. We spoke with many interesting writers who enjoy short fiction.
I can’t wait for Writefest 2018!
