Writers you should read

These guys... THESE GUYS... they're great. You should read their stuff. They're published, unpublished, flashers, novelists, poets and mentalists. There's a web full of writers, but these guys I think are some of the best. I'll be adding to this list with literary magazines, twitter compatriots, writing forum buddies and random writerly people. For now, here are a few from Show Me Your Lits and general web-trawling...

Steven V Ramey - This fine specimen of a writer blogs here about writing, submitting stories and reading the slush pile for Triangulation. You can read some of his work here.

Tammy Hanna, the Heartful Blogger - This woman's writing tortures me in a wonderfully enjoyable way. Soulful, delicate, cutting and unique, her stories should be read again and again.

Martha Williams - This woman's work is just brilliant. I stumbled across one of her flash fiction pieces and I've been addicted ever since.

Kate Alexander-Kirk - Kate only started submitting her short stories recently and already has an impressive roll call of publications. You can read some of them here.

Mark DeMoss - His blog, North Side of the Moon, collects "stories, snippets and stray observations", and beautifully so.

And a final mention for Cezarija Abartis, who doesn't blog, but nonetheless has a grand list of stories published on and offline. Google her, and enjoy the absolute lyricism of her words.
