Nailing the Spike

Conference Workshop
Nailing the Spike focusses on the quick and dramatic arc (i.e. the spike) required to make a short story stand out, particularly in this competitive publishing environment. April Eberhardt is a reader for the Best American Short Stories series published annually by Houghton Mifflin each October. Prior to becoming a literary agent, she was head reader for Zoetrope--All Story, Francis Ford Coppola's literary journal.
