DISAPPEARING DEBUTANTES by Meg Pokrass and Aimee Parkison is born!
Dear Students and Friends,
I’m excited to let you know that last week, my new collection of flash fiction, DISAPPEARING DEBUTANTES, co-created with multi-award winning author Aimee Parkison, was published by San Francisco’s wonderful small press Outpost 19! Disappearing Debutantes is now available worldwide from online booksellers.
In this large flash fiction collection are sections of new, solo-written flash fiction stories written (individually) by myself and Aimee Parkison, as well as some collaboratively created pieces.
The stories in this collection have appeared in The Best Small Fictions, Conjunctions, Five Points: A Journal of Literature and Art, Big Other, Laurel Review, Lost Balloon, trampset, Citron Review, New World Writing, Funny Pearls, Cleaver Magazine, Ghost Parachute, and many other literary magazines.
From the publisher’s website:
In Disappearing Debutantes, each disappearing woman refuses to make a graceful exit or to blossom into the perfect flowery fem society wants her to become. Instead, she boldly celebrates her oddly transformative disappearance from a life that didn’t go as planned by exploring a self-charted, self-made, surreal world of love, longing, lust, and lore.
To celebrate our launch, there is an upcoming free prompt-driven Facebook writing event running from October 5th-9th for everyone who picks up a copy of Disappearing Debutantes and who wants to participate. I will be creating exciting prompts and writing challenges directly from stories and themes in the collection and and writers can post their stories for all to read.
If you wish be added to the list for the group, please send me an email at pokrasswritingworkshops.com with the heading: “Disappearing Debs”
