"I'm very much interested in the 'flash' or compressed modes of writing. Compressed writing, with its conscious borders, requires a special level of attention to words and choices. Such prose acts like a painting or photograph in its mixture of, on the one hand, a conscious frame, and on the other, a multitude of narrative possibilities. Like visual art, compressed prose can behave amongst many fields simultaneously. I'm also fascinated by the ways in which compressed prose can mirror the psychology of life in a society where technology enables information to saturate the tiniest of moments and spaces." -- Carolyn Zaikowski
