Vestal Review’s Pick of the year

Since 2017, I’m an associate editor for Vestal Review Flash fiction magazine. Recently, all of us editors picked a story for each year of Vestal’s existence, and explained what makes that story so powerful, and why we’re so touched by it. Below are my contributions, about fabulous flashes by Robert Olen Butler and Joseph Faria.

You can find the stories – and my thoughts about them hereĀ and here
