Stringing for “Brevity”: the Second of Three.

Continuing to tell the world about covering AWP panels for my bucket-list mag, Brevity:

When they talk about “distinguished panelists,” they are not kidding. One of my favorite writers, Mimi Schwartz (Thoughts from a Queen-Sized Bed), the editor of one of my favorite magazines, Joe Mackall (River Teeth Journal); and Philip Lopate (Philip Lopate).

“Speaking after Phillip Lopate must be like what Danny DeVito feels, at a bar with Brad Pitt. They’re not there for you but there is decent overflow.”

By Alle C Hall, writer!

Alle C. Hall’s flash fiction placed as a finalist for The 2020 Lascaux Prize. Longer work appears most recently in Dale Peck’s Evergreen Review; as well as in Tupelo Quarterly, Creative Nonfiction Magazine, Brevity (blog), and Another Chicago Magazine. Formerly an associate editor at Vestal Review, Alle's additional “wins” include: a Best of the Net nomination; First Place in The Richard Hugo House New Works Competition; and finalist or semi-finalist in the contests of: Boulevard Magazine, Creative Nonfiction Magazine, Hippocampus, and Memoir Magazine.

Claim to fame: interviewed Leonard Nimoy. He was a bit of a pill; disappointing.
