Spillers is Phoenix's premier short fiction storytelling event. Held quarterly, we handpick Phoenix's best writers, put them on a stage, feature them in 2 episodes of the Spillers After Show podcast, and publish their stories in a collectible book available the night of the event.
Kathryn is an MFA candidate in fiction at ASU. Her fiction has appeared or is forthcoming at AGNI Online, Fiction Southeast, Gigantic Sequins, Passages North, and elsewhere. She is the winner of the 2016 Innovative Fiction Prize from The Conium Review and a recipient of a Virginia G. Piper Center Global Fellowship.
Send us one original story, of your own creation, that you think is primed for the Spillers audience. IMPORTANT: This story must be no more than 10 minutes long when read aloud (generally 1,800-2,000 words), and free to be published in a Spillers event chapbook. Excerpts are acceptable, but the piece must work as a standalone short story. Either send us a link or paste the story into your email here.
What we look for in a writer
Our favorite thing is to put undiscovered talent alongside award-winners. We don't limit Spillers to specific genres or styles. Simply, we want the best version of what you do well. We look for unique voices, distinct voices, true voices — a voice only you can have, only you can bring. If we love what you've done, we'll proudly and loudly make you part of Spillers.
