Chatting With Sherri welcomes new writer; Andrew Dykstal!
Andrew will be coming to Hollywood for a week-long professional workshop, an awards event and his story will be published in our anthology, Writers and Illistrators of the Future Volume 35, which has been on the bestseller lists the past 4 years in a row. The contest is in its 35th year!
Andrew Dykstal lives in Arlington, Virginia, where he works as a technical editor. He’s been a lifelong consumer of stories, and tipped over from affection to obsession when a few of his college professors persuaded him to major in English alongside political science. Between then and now, he’s taught high school English and humanities (with a weird jaunt into orbital mechanics), earned an MA in English from the University of Virginia, and inflicted countless half-formed short stories, novels, and poems upon a circle of dear and long-suffering friends, without whom he’d have finished going mad years ago. This is his second fiction sale; his flash story “Clockwork” is forthcoming in Daily Science Fiction.
