#26: Dave Patterson
January 23, 2016
Here’s the third installment in our special collection of In the Telling podcasts: stories, essays, and poetry by our 2015 Pushcart Nominees. Each episode includes an introduction by our editors. The series is curated by Joseph Scalora.
In this episode, editor-in-chief Elizabeth Blachman discusses why she nominated Dave Patterson’s story “Flight” (Issue 16) for the Pushcart Prize, and then Patterson reads his story.
Dave Patterson is from Cape Elizabeth, Maine. He attended the Bread Loaf School of English and is a graduate of the Stonecoast MFA program. His work has appeared in Slice, the Apple Valley Review, Clare Literary Journal, and Hot Metal Bridge, among other literary magazines.
