Our own Rebecca Schwab is mentioned in “Eight Flash Nonfiction Writers” over at Vela Magazine today

Crossborder and Leapfrog Press acquisitions editor Rebecca Schwab got a nod for her flash non-fiction in Kelly Sundberg’s “Eight Flash Nonfiction Writers” over at Vela Magazine today.

Sundberg discusses how pieces like “Things My Students Don’t Know” are not “afraid to examine the embarrassing, shameful, humorous and, ultimately, sad details,” but notes that Schwab often “subverts her own humor and reveals seriousness at its core.” This results, Sundberg says, in “flash essay[s] of stunning pathos.”

About Leapfrog Press
Leapfrog Press was created to search out, publish, and aggressively market books that tell a strong story. Leapfrog began its life in Wellfleet, Mass., at the outer end of Cape Cod, in 1993. In 2008 we migrated to Falmouth, Mass., and in 2012 we made the move to Fredonia, N.Y., a town with a rich creative history and an equally rich present in the arts and science. Our list is eclectic and includes quality fiction, poetry, and nonfiction; books that are described by the large commercial publishers as midlist, and which we regard as the heart and soul of literature.
