October Forum

Our gratitude goes out to all who read and/or came to hear the readings at our October forum. The audience was laughing one moment, near tears in another, and there wasn’t a spare seat in the house!


We had a few stories inspired by John Lennon, recognizing his birthday on the night of our event, October 9th. We had a new type of flash fiction, “found flash fiction”, and we had some participants come from as far as Sonoma and San Francisco.
