Follow That Fiction

American Short Fiction launches a new issue and a new craft series

Follow That Fiction

Many a writer will swear by the effectiveness of a nice glass of vino in loosing the creative juices, which makes House Wine the perfect venue for American Short Fiction's upcoming craft talk.

The editors of American Short Fiction, the nationally recognized lit magazine founded and flourishing in our fair city, will host the event on Aug. 19, 6-8pm, at House Wine (408 Josephine St.). On the menu: wine, free apps, a talk about the art of fiction writing, and a free-writing period. The event will also include details about ASF's upcoming adult writing classes (which start Oct. 12). See for more info.

And while we're on the subject of ASF, the mag's summer issue debuts shortly. Celebrate that fact in style at American Short Fiction's Indian Summer Party on Thursday, Aug. 12 at the Mohawk (912 Red River). Musician Danny Malone will play a set, poet Tomás Morin will read some verse, and Austin actors Elizabeth Bigger and Chris Gibson will perform select readings from the new issue.
