Philip Graham Reports: International Short Story Conference in Lisbon

Author and erstwhile 9L fiction editor Philip Graham reported to us this summer from the 2006 International Conference on the Short Story in English, which was held in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal. Many stellar writers from across the globe participated in this year’s conference, including Portuguese author Gonçalo Tavares and Irish author William Wall, both of whom have new work featured in the latest issue of 9L. Former 9L contributors Katherine Vaz and Robert Olen Butler were also among those who shared their talents. Thanks to Philip and to video producer Nathaniel Gottlieb-Graham, we can get a taste of this amazing literary event…
