Author and blogger Jim Harrington has been asking editors and slush pile readers to “list, in excruciating details, all that each desires in his/her stories.” Good idea. He poses this request in the form of six question and–not unreasonably–gathers his continuing responses at the Six Question For… blog.
Jim has posted a response from FFO slush pile reader Pat Dey. (Authors: if you get one past Pat, you’ve done well.) Here is Six Questions for Pat Dey, Slushreader, Flash Fiction Online, and here is the general link to the Six Questions For blog, “where editors and publishers discuss writing flash fiction, short stories, poetry, and novels.”
