Tara Laskowski, featured frequently on this site (if too often only incidentally), was named the Kathy Fish Fellow at SmokeLong Quarterly earlier this week. The Fellowship honors authors who’ve demonstrated consistent excellence in flash fiction and champions new works by these writers. As the third Kathy Fish Fellow, Tara will become a “writer in residence” at SmokeLong for 2009, working closely with the editors on continuing to develop her flash fiction and publishing a new story in each of their 2009 issues.
For a sample of her short fiction, check out her story “They,” published at Pindeldyboz. Also look for an interview on this site when the first of her stories appears in SmokeLong. And congratulations to Tara in the meantime!
