Stories on Stage--Starting January 2010

Friends and writers,

I heard about this from local fiction writer Valerie Fioravanti. Valerie says:

"I'm pleased to announce the debut of Sacramento's newest monthly reading series, focusing upon short fiction by writers from Sacramento and surrounding areas. Each event will feature two short stories, introduced by their authors and read by actors. The series will run on the last Friday of every month, beginning January, 2010. The first two featured writers will be Sacramento native Jodi Angel, author of The History of Vegas, on January 29th and Bay Area resident Lori Ostlund, author of The Bigness of the World, winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction, on February 26th. Jodi and Lori will be paired with an emerging short story writer from the community.For more information about the series, please visit: http://valeriefioravanti.com/SoS.aspx."

I will definitely make some time to check out this new series. I hope to see you there!


  1. Kate, thanks for the heads-up. I've submitted a story for Valerie's consideration.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Renee, that is great! Thanks for sharing this with us (and I wish you luck!). --K

  3. Kate, my story was accepted, and will be read on April 30. This is a great event, and my husband and I had so much fun at Valerie's debut -- wonderful stories read by accomplished actors; truly something fun and different. I hope you'll pop in for a listen.

    Thanks again for sharing -- Renee
