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.”
