KYSL SD23: Julie Ann Shapiro

January 30, 2009

Know Your Session Leaders ….

Julie Ann Shapiro is loads of fun. That much I can say personally, as she’s one of our workshop leaders I’ve spent some time talking to. And she’s also a leading voice for modern flash fiction, a genre that claims for itself an impressive historical roster.

Her short stories have appeared in many, many magazines, reviews, and journals; MSG counted thirty-eight before he stopped counting, so pardon me, please, if I don’t recite them all. Suffice to say, it’s an impressive list. (The complete list, or something close, is available at her website.) And she’s also the author of Jen-Zen and the One Shoe Diaries, a novel published in 2007. And, hey, she even popped up in USA Today last year, talking about Amazon’s Kindle.

Ms. Shapiro will lead a workshop on “Flash Fiction: The Ultra-Quick Story Market“.
