Sixty Seconds with: Jorbi K.

Ten answers to ten questions in 20 words or fewer. That’s less time than it takes to burn a match*.

(*Depending on the length of the match and your tolerance for burned fingers, obviously)


Our newest Flash! Friday winner is Jorbi Kon his first time out! Read his winning story here. Then take one teeny tiny minute to get to know him better in the super quick interview below.

1) What about the prompt inspired your winning piece? The grayscale, low-angle picture of the White House with a foreground of a fence made it look menacing.

2) How long have you been writing flash? Just started my blog at the end of January, but have been writing since I was little.

3) What do you like about flash? Flash fiction is a perfectly condensed and bite-sized morsel of a creative imagination.

4) What flash advice would you give other writers? Condensing words is key.  Instead of 10 words to describe something, find the perfect 1 or 2.

5) Who is a writer we should follow, and why? Chuck Palahniuk is releasing a short story collection in May, I’m sure it will be great.

6) Do you participate in other flash contests, and which? Not so much a contest, but I do write for Friday Fictioneers as well.

7) What other forms do you write (novels, poetry, articles, etc)? I’ve been working on a novel in between writing film scripts

8) What is/are your favorite genre(s) to write, and why? I love writing a mix of fantasy and reality in a satirical way.  

9) Tell us about a WIP. I’m working on my first novel, Him and Her, which should be done by the end of summer.

10) How do you feel about dragons? Dragons are quite fearsome, but are trumped by one thing – unicorns. {Editor’s Note: do you mean on a sandwich?}
