Flannery O'Connor Award

The fabulous Nancy Zafris is the new Flannery O'Connor Award in Short Fiction series editor-- here's an excerpt from her bio:
Her most recent novel is Lucky Strike, a Book Sense notable pick. She has also published The Metal Shredders, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year. Her first book, The People I Know, won the Flannery O'Connor Award as well as the Ohioana Library Association award. She was the fiction editor of the Kenyon Review for nine years before becoming the Flannery O'Connor Award series editor. For more information about Nancy, visit her web site at

And along with G.C. Waldrep and Jane McCafferty, Yours Truly is serving as one of the judges this year. For those thinking to submit a manuscript: Nancy asked me a few questions here.
