Mid-August Roundup

Kim Henderson's chapbook The Kind of Girl is hot off the presses, and it's already getting some excellent coverage, including this review by Andree Robinson-Neal at The Flash Fiction Chronicles in which she writes: "These pieces were not haphazardly created; Henderson developed her style of writing short vignettes by following journal prompts and used various motivations, including music, familiar locations, and observations to craft these, as she calls them, 'inspired little bursts.'" Thanks, Andree!

Kim also did an interview with The Short Form about the chapbook here in which she a) appears as a very cool drawing and b) answers such questions as: "The stories read like they were ideas you've had for a long time and kneaded through the years. Is that true?"

Over at the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters, B.J. Best answers five questions, including this one: "Your newest collection of prose poems references the classics—classic video games, that is. But Our Princess Is in Another Castle is considered by your publisher an “ekphrastic project,” a way of providing commentary on a work of visual art. Are classic video games art?" 

And last but not least, Dinty W. Moore, the editor of The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Writing Flash Nonfiction, did this Q&A over at The Baltimore Review.
