My flash fiction piece What Is Between Us is now online at miniStories. You can read it by clicking here. Oh, and once again, this is another piece that failed as a poem, but through revision became a decent flash fiction piece. Seems to be a pattern – I’ve had several of those this year so far.
The person who posted it online declares that What Is Between Us “ explores the tensions and inextricable connections woven through the ties that bind us.” Word. :)
miniStories is mnartists.org's quarterly flash fiction competition. This literary series is coordinated by Electric Arc Radio's Geoff Herbach (author of newly released novel, The Miracle Letters of T. Rimburg, published by Three Rivers Press), and it showcases previously unpublished short stories by Minnesota writers. These winning short-short stories are selected by authors, editors, and publishing industry veterans from across the country. Winning miniStories are published on mnartists.org and in the e-magazine access+ENGAGE .
I’m happy to be a part of this round of miniStories and was energized by the miniStories reading that I participated in on July 27 – it was electric. I hope I get a chance to contribute again to miniStories. Which means I have to get off my butt and finish my submission for the next round, since it’s due by the end of September. Be good…
