I'm the author of "Damn Sure Right" (Press 53), a debut collection of flash fiction. I serve as senior editor at Frederick Barthelme's new Mississippi Review (BLIP). Additionally, I design and run the Fictionaut Five author interview series at the Fictionaut Blog, most recently featuring Mona Simpson, Michael Knight, Jane Smiley, Daniel Handler, Rick Moody, Alan Heathcock, Brad Watson, Charles Baxter - and coming up soon... Richard Nash.

Blurbs for "Damn Sure Right":

“Meg Pokrass writes like a brain looking for a body. Wonderful, dark, unforgiving.” – Frederick Barthelme

“Read Damn Sure Right, a collection of miniature tales sure to ruin your waking hours the way you’ll want the ruined.” – Kyle Minor, author of  In The Devil’s Territory

My work has appeared in more than a hundred online and print publications, including Mississippi Review, Wigleaf, The Pedestal, Everyday Genius, Big Muddy, Keyhole, Annalemma, elimae, Gigantic, Gargoyle, Prime Number, Women Writers, Istanbul Review and 3AM.
