On November 15th the PL Short Story class will welcome a Guest Speaker, Ron Jackson, to discuss Mid-Autumn by Robert Olen Butler. We extend an invitation to the full PL membership to join us for what should be a very stimulating session! The link to the story will be made available via the PL calendar.
To introduce Ron, he writes fiction, non-fiction and poetry. His work has appeared in The Chattahoochee Review, North Carolina Literary Review, Tar River Poetry, and other venues. Ron was a finalist for the Doris Betts prize and Thomas Wolfe prizes in short fiction, the Lascaux Prize in Flash Fiction, the Prime Number Magazine Flash Fiction Award, and the Lamar York Prize in Non-Fiction. He holds an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Before the pandemic, you could find him in Durham cafés, working on his short fiction collection or a Philly-based crime novel. He desperately wants to move his writing hours back out to the wider world.
