Flash piece by Dan Townsend

I just read a cool little short short thing that’s just up today at NANO Fiction. Go on, it’s good and it’ll take you about a minute.


Story in Tin House’s Open Bar


Local fans cheer Armel Dagorn after hearing of the story’s publication.

A story of mine, The Brotherhood of Wednesday Afternoons, has just been published on Tin House’s blog as part of their Flash Fridays series. And I’m pretty damn proud.

Another moderate success for Armel!


I’ve had a poem long-listed in the Over the Edge competition. I’m immoderately happy about it. The short-list will be out at the end of the month, so if you need me in the meantime, I’ll be at home pacing around. 


Stories by Simon Rich

If you have a few minutes and you like clever, funny yet cute stories, you could do worse than read either or both of these stories by Simon Rich in the New Yorker. He’s a new find of mine, and I’ll definitely be looking out for more of his stuff.
