Small Press Distribution has now put Searching for Suzi on its recommended reading list! Pass this email along, order your Christmas copies (wink) and have your cool local bookstore stock it on the shelves. For those of you who don't know what a distributor does, their job is to get the beautiful books made by the publisher onto the shelves of the bookstores, so this is a really big deal.

Denver Reading and Release Party for Fast Forward: The Mix Tape
Friday, September 24,
The Mercury Cafe
2199 California Street
From the New York City Fast Forward Release Party
From a review of The Mix Tape:
“The microstories range from high comedy to sensitive melodrama, to bizarre animals, funerals, Holocaust, teen pregnancies, religion - almost every imaginable topic is surveyed with astonishingly fine writing. Some of the stand out works include a brief look at an encounter with possible love angles that ends unexpectedly by Felix Calvino ('In the Park'), several stories from Nancy Stohlman ('Clowning for Jesus' is bound to become a classic) whose flirtations with being naughty ('Donny and Marie Osmond Barbie') vie with those of Kona Morris ('Confession #3', 'Going Back') or stories by Sophie Rosenblum ('A Terrier's Limits' et al). To have the luxury to savor such creativity within the covers of one book is a feast. Let's hope these 'Fast Forwards' continue! Editors K. Scott Forman, Kona Morris, and Nancy Stohlman have done a superb job in arresting the talents of many terrific writers.” Grady Harp

Get Back on the Page: Connecting to Your Inner Writer
Colorado Free University
Do you feel the call to write, but struggle to find the time or focus to get the thoughts in your mind into print? The first step in meeting and/or reconnecting to the writer inside of you is to dust yourself off and get back on the page! In a supportive workshop environment, you can get the momentum going again and see the world through the eyes of a writer. All ages and skill levels are welcome, and while this will mostly focus on prose writing, poets are welcome, too. Come with an empty journal and an open mind and be ready to give and receive constructive feedback. Nancy Stohlman is the author of the novel Searching for Suzi: a flash novel and the co-founder and editor of the annual Fast Forward: A Collection of Flash Fiction. She has been teaching writing for almost a decade.
