On the HINT FICTION front, I hear from Robert Swartwood that he’s forwarded the finalists to Stewart O’Nan in the adventure competition of the new genre “hint fiction.” He should be announcing the winners soon on his blog.
Digest of last week’s Chronicles here. Quick links to posts by Sean Lovelace, Bill Ward, K. C. Ball, Rumjhum Biswas, and myself. Still open to post submissions. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Also I’ve been honored with an invitation to be a guest speaker at one of Kerry Madden’s classes at Vromans in Pasadena this coming Thursday. We’ll be talking about flash fiction and how it’s impacting craft of writing, all to the positive.
Kerry is the author of Up Close: Harper Lee, a biography of the author of To Kill A Mockingbird. You can meet her in person on Sunday, May 24 at 4:00pm when she signs her new biography at Vroman’s Bookstore 695 E. Colorado BlvdPasadena, California 91101.
