3-minute Egg

The Loft Literary Center and Milkweed Editions celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Loft Mentor Series with the release of the new anthology, Fiction on a Stick. 3-Minute Egg dropped into the reading this past Saturday and spoke with insiders about the mentorship series and the anthology. One thing that makes the anthology special according to editor is that is a cosmopolitan effort. It shows the diversity of Minnesota writers. Many of the writers haven't written with others outside of their chosen genre, many were also writing poetry for the first time. This diversity and challenge has created a special kind of writing in Minnesota that is showcased throughout the book.
