Dive into the art of crafting short stories with fiction writers A.G. Harmon, Edie Meidav, and Zach Powers. Harmon’s collection Some Bore Gifts is celebrated for the wide array of compelling characters portrayed in such tight short stories, including tree cutters, junk salesman, and department store pianists. In Kingdom of the Young, Mediav’s characters showcase a sense of survival, featuring child armies, cave-dwelling women in Granada, trauma-scarred veterans, and victims of dictatorships. In Gravity Changes, Powers’ fascinating characters propel stories about Satan’s divorcee, a light bulb’s husband, and gravity-defiant children.
