New Fiction Confab on 4/13


Texas readers, this year’s New Fiction Confab in Austin looks completely irresistible.

There will be talks with writers like Sam Lipsyte, Susan Steinberg, and Rumpus Book Club author Manuel Gonzales; creative-writing workshops for writers of all ages; and a lit fair with local publishers like Unstuck, A Strange Object, and American Short Fiction.

The best news of all: all events are free and open to the public. Go and take lots of pictures and write blog posts that make us jealous because we couldn’t be there!
