Guess who's going to be serving as Distinguished Guest for the 2013 Eratosphere Flash Fiction Workshop?
Hint: It's not Ophelia.
How it works: The event begins this coming Friday, October 18 and runs for five days. I'll be dishing up a writing prompt each day, and writers will post their flash fiction (1,000 words or less). Writers get feedback from other participants, and I'll be chiming in here and there with feedback too. After that you can revise your submissions.
On the last day, I'll be choosing an overall winner of the Flash Fiction Workshop.

If you're a writer and you don't know Eratosphere, you might want to pay them a visit. Named for Erato, the Greek Muse of lyric poetry, Eratosphere is a charmed place where poets and fiction writers post their work and provide each other with really smart feedback. Eratosphere is associated with the wonderful journal Able Muse, and also with Able Muse Press, which brought out my second book of poetry, This Bed Our Bodies Shaped.
By the way, in order to submit, you'll need to register at Eratosphere.
The Flash Fiction Bakeoff thread may be found here.
I hope to see you soon at the 'Sphere!
