I have a flash fiction piece in the new issue of Word Riot (http://www.wordriot.org/archives/3353) entitled “On Knowing What I’m Doing.” Many thanks to Kevin O’ Cuinn and Jackie Corley for featuring me along with so many great writers this month. Special bonus is that you can read or listen to me read the piece. Though it’s only a minute and a half, I’ll consider this my first audio book.
Benjamin RoeschI am a novelist and short story writer living in Burlington, Vermont. My work has appeared in Brilliant Corners, Word Riot, Seven Days, Monkey Bicycle and other fine purveyors of the written word. Mostly, this blog will chronicle my writing life. But I’m restless. And writing can get tiresome to hear about, even if it’s the thing that makes you go boom. So don’t be surprised to find the occasional album or book review, recipe, political musing, notes on a recent home brewing endeavor, writing tutorial, anecdote, or rhetorical question into the ether. Thanks for coming. Stay a while.
