Twelve Days of Giving Reason Two: Guest Reader Stefanie Freele
NANO Fiction: What first drew you to NANO Fiction?
Stefanie Freele: My admiration for the well-crafted short-short.
NF: Who are the writers (flash fiction or otherwise) that you most admire?
SF: So many! Stephen King, Russell Edson, Lydia Davis, Margaret Atwood, Robert Olen Butler, Bruce Holland Rogers, Barry Yourgrau, Ray Vukcevich, Charles Baxter, etc. etc. etc.
NF: If you had nothing to do with reading/writing, what would you be doing?
SF: I hike. You can find me in the forest with my dog. On second thought, don’t find me. I tend to wander in the quiet and listen to the woods.
NF: What kind of submissions are you looking for?
SF: I like to read the unusual. I’m drawn to slipstream, magical realism and studies in human character and behavior.
NF: And lastly, because we are in our 12 days of giving (to NANO Fiction), why should readers consider donating, or subscribing to NANO?
SF: For this obvious reason: terrific short-fiction needs to be read and supported.
