Blink-Ink on WNPR

Today on Nation public radio there was a very good piece on flash fiction, and       Blink-Ink got a solid mention! Blink alums Paul Beckman, and Tom Hazuka were on the show as well as writers Meg Pokrass, Ben White (twitter fiction), and Rachael Fershleiser (6 word fiction). The show is archived online so you can hear the whole thing at, and find the Colin McEnroe show for 05.19.16. Thanks to everybody, and especially thanks to Tom and Paul.

Blink-Ink Dance Party !

We asked a double handful of Blink-Ink All Stars to put on their dancing shoes, bring records in from home, and share some very short stories. Rocky Mountain Revival was kind enough to host our podcast, so a very big thanks to Levi Andrew Noe who runs the show. We all hope you can find the time to listen, and if you like what you hear please vote for Levi’s show at iTunes podcasts. We are delighted to so many fine readers including Catfish McDaris, Nancy Stohlman, Meg Tuite, Jonathan Cardew, Jayne Martin, Gat detain, Paul Beckman, Sharon Coleman, Lynn Mundell, or very own Sally Reno, and I close out the show. Please take a listen, and tell us what you think so we can make the next one even better.  Check out our Dance Party!

Cities Issue #22 Guidelines (submissions closed)


Cities in flight, cities in motion.

Cities well know, cities beneath the ocean.

The Eternal City, The Emerald City

Cloud City, and  New Tokyo.

The city that never sleeps, the city that never was.

Hidden cities that wait, and cities forgotten long ago.  

Your story should take place in a city, be about a city,

have a city as a character, or a city as a state of mind.

No vacation stories or travelogues unless they are pretend.

We are interested in hearing stories from places

we have never known, and places unimagined.

So, our question to you is….

What streets do you walk when you dream?
