Hello hello hello, all you lovers of flash fiction! This is your rock ‘n’ roll Papa sleepless in Pittsburgh. Yes, it’s around three o’clock in the morning here in Pittsburgh and I’m sitting at my workstation doing some tweeting and re-tweeting, surfing the web and tinkering with the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. Such is life when you’re retired which allows you to be a full-time professional blogger. It’s a great life. You sleep when you want to sleep and you eat when you want to eat and you drink when you want to drink and you blog when you want to blog and although I won’t be able to do any drinking until Friday when I get more fun money I can blog any time I want to blog.
When anyone clicks on the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, he or she might dismiss this online publication as just another silly girlie magazine. Not true! My little girlie magazine explores many serious topics and one of the most serious topics explored on this site is the flash fiction story.
I feel I can blog about the flash fiction story with some authority since it was my submission of 50 typed-on-one-side pages of my flash fiction stories that got me accepted to the graduate writing program at the University of Pittsburgh in 2003 and which also won me a K. LeRoy Irvis Fellowship that not only paid for all three years of my graduate studies but also gave me a monthly stipend of $1,00.00 for all three years.
You know you can’t beat that with a stick!
So, explore the site. You will find everything you ever wanted to know about flash fiction but was afraid to ask and so much more.
Hail To Pitt!
