This post is either early or late (I found out about it a couple of weeks ago, but the event’s not happening until later this fall), but former fiction editor, Tadd Adcox, has recently had his first story accepted for Quick Fiction, a journal devoted to short-shorts. He’s been honing his craft of the form for several years now, so we at Sycamore wish him well for his success. Be sure to check out Quick Fiction either later this year or early in ’08 for Tadd’s piece.
In the mean time you can check out some of his work on his blog, Fiction-Volante, where he’s been posting one short-short every weekday for a couple of months now. Besides the writing, Tadd’s project is interesting because it’s a demonstration of self-discipline, which I’ve heard makes or breaks writers after the MFA, and a blog is a good way to garner a readership before the breakout book.
