Saturday, I received PANK # 3 in the mail. It's as square, thick, substantial, and beautifully wrapped as an exciting gift. I'm about a third of the way in. I shouldn't have started into it until I finished Olive Kitteridge, but I couldn't help myself. I'll comment more when I finish. For now, I'll just say that PANK do everything oh so well, and that more than ever I can appreciate the growing pool of incredible flash writers we have in our midst.
Also, PANK are running their first ever writing contest. Check it out at their blog here.
Another exciting writing contest is Flatmancrooked's short story competition judged by Aimee Bender. The deadline is August 15th. Enter here.
