A unique anthology that draws together the work and musings of our leading pioneers of short-form writing, this book features writers who take this time-honored literary form to new heights. Concise, wise, and sometimes terse or humorous, aphorisms are short phrases that are often instructional or moralistic. With a brief introductory piece from each author and a generous sampling of each individual’s particular take on the aphorism, the reader is presented with a vast trove of wit, wisdom, insight, and inspiration, as well as new ways to look at language, words, and writing. From Nothing dirtier than old soap to He doesn’t need imagination he’s got money, the writers expound upon their favorite adages. Short Flights is sure to intrigue and delight all lovers of literature, language, and wordplay. (Schaffner Press)
Natalie N. Caro, Nadia de Vries, Laura Hinton, Jason Koo, and Joe Pan (who will read about 5 minutes each), followed by Short Flights editor James Lough’s PowerPoint presentation.
