We’re giving away 50 copies of Kate Garklavs’s micro-chapbook, In Memoriam: Lot 69097, at the 2017 AWP Conference in Washington, DC. Kate’s story was the winner of our most recent flash fiction contest, judged by Leesa Cross-Smith. Each of these 50 copies will be numbered and signed by the author. Stop by table 548-T to get yours. We expect them to be gone fast, so show up early if you want to snag one!
