Roundtable on Flash Fiction at Copper Nickel / by Danielle Lazarin

Over at Copper Nickel's website, I talk flash fiction (what is it? who knows?! why do people like it? who knows?!) with Joseph Aguilar, Patricia Colleen Murphy, & Alicita Rodríguez, all contributors to Copper Nickel's flash-focused Spring Issue. You can also read my story, "Back Talk" online at the site. Check it out. 

"The shorter my word count, the more I think about what I can get away with not writing down while aiming to say as much as I would in a story two or ten times as long. For me, this is when flash can fail, if it doesn’t aim to say as much, if the writer gives themself an out because of word count. Never give yourself an out."
