Tonight, I’m doing a cool event, and I would love to see some of your smiling faces at said event. As part of the Quickies! Reading Series, which I did a few months ago, I’m doing a special reading along with about thirty other folks, where we each read a 55-word story. Think of that! Fifty-five words isn’t many, and it was harder than I thought it construct a story in fifty-five words, but I did it and I’ll be reading it tonight along with 55-word story-writers including some fine people you’ve likely already read about right here:

Kyle Beachy
Dave Snyder
Tobias Amadon Bengelsdorf
Heidi McKye
Nick Ostdick
Zach Plague
Colt Foutz
James Lower
Jessi Lee
Amy Guth (hey, that’s me!)
Spencer Dew
Nicolette Bond
Maria Plumb
Ira Murfin
Jac Jemc
Lauren Pretnar
Jill Summers
Ben Tanzer
Kate Harbaugh
Sam Reaves
JT Litchfield
Kevin Fink
Amira Hanafi
Lex Sonne
Geoffrey Forsyth
Melanie Datz
