Our friend Levi Noe of Rocky Mountain Revival fame out in Denver has put up our latest podcast. Everyone on the show has been nominated by Blink Ink for an award over the last two years.Performances by Rob Geisen, Lynn Mundell, Kathryn Knudson, Katie Yates, Nancy Stolhman, Gay DeGani, and the show closer Catfish McDaris. I get a chance to read Sally Reno’s “Tom, The Henchman’s Boy”. Please be supportive of Rocky Mountain Revival, at the end of the recording Levi tells you now. Big thanks to everyone and please pass this along to other folks.
Results have been annonced for The VERA Award. This award is based on a combination of readers votes and the input of the Editorial staff of the Vestal Review. Editor Mark Budman does a good job over there and they are one of the longest running indie publications around. Congratulations to all, but especially Blink-Ink alum Jayne Martin who won, and Blink-Ink nominee Nancy Stolhman who took third place overall with a second in the popular vote. Her nominated story “My Father is Trying to Set the World’s record for Days Spent Petting a Shark” appeared in Blink #21 our “Under the Sea”issue
‘Tis the season, but…. We here at Blink were very excited to be asked to nominate some of our many fine contributing writers for the Best Small Fictions Awards. There are dozens of people we’d love to select, but are only allowed five, so here they are and congratulations to all.
