A Queer Vietnamese-Houstonian-New Yorker Writer musing about the arts and absurdities when not screenwriting or playwrighting

New School MFA Student Reading: “Lilaca” (My Screwed-Up Short Story Involving a Demon)

“Lilaca tried to disappear…”

I’m bad at nanowrimo2017. But I read my in-progress fantastical short story aloud to MFA students at the New School Wollman Hall. It’s perhaps the first short story I read publicly (I usually read poetry and read one satirical nonfiction-type piece in the past).

It’s grainy footage shot by a friend’s smartphone, but the audio is intact. Enjoy! Comments appreciated.

Feedback post-reading:

  • “You put headaches in a different light.”
  •  “That was intense.”
  • “I didn’t expect that.”
