Joe Hiland, The Indiana Review‘s fiction editor, has some advice for writers who submit to his (or any) magazine.
We at HOOT talk about these sorts of things a lot when looking through our submissions for what we want to publish. After all, it’s not just about what suits our tastes, but also what is new/exciting/pushing buttons in the form!

The other day I was talking to someone about needing to write a short piece, and they said, “if it only has to be 150 words, can’t you just write it now? You have 10 minutes!”
Flash is a lot more than having 10 minutes to spare. That being said, for those of you who favor longer, more extensively “complex” works of writing, read this article and take some of those 10 minutes to re-consider why flash might just be a really, really awesome exercise in your writing practice.
To those of you who write flash fiction, or are looking to start but need some help, we have a book recommendation!
We suggest checking out Rose Metal Press’ Field Guide to Writing Flash Fiction: Tips from Editors, Teachers, and Writers in the Field. With a collection of 25 essays from a variety of cool people/writers like yourselves, Rose Metal describes the book like this:
The book’s introduction provides, for the first time, a comprehensive history of the short short story, from its early roots and hitherto unknown early publications and appearances, to its current state and practice. This guide is a must for anyone in the field of short fiction who teaches, writes, and is interested in its genesis and practice.
We use it, and we suggest you check it out, too!
…that the name for someone who collects postcard is a “dietologist” ?
Do you self-identify with that term or have you ever met anyone who self-identifies as a dietologist outside of the internet (which may or may not be a real thing) ?
Thanks for @Wahidao for the Twitter shout-out (she has so many followers!) and for coming to our Wednesday workshop! It’s awesome to have cool people from across the country who are able to take part in our workshop experience.
