Lindsay Hunter outlines the rules of doing a “Quickie”


By: Brad Gaspelin and Danielle Haughland


Quickies is a Chicago based flash-fiction reading series. For those who don’t know what flash-fiction is, it’s all about brevity. There are no word limits in the Quickies reading series, but there is a time limit. Lindsay Hunter tells us about that limit, the consequences for breaking it, and some of the other rules of Quickies. Quickies performed a special Iowa City reading as part of the Mission Creek Festival.
