Git: A Short Story by Brandi Granett

Hello Everyone!

In order to ask others to participate in our new venture, A Story Goes On: A Literary Podcast, I felt we must be willing to take the risk and add voice to our own works first.  In that vein, I bring you Git, a piece of flash fiction I wrote for the Writer’s Unboxed Flash Fiction Contest.

Brandi Megan Granett is a writer and online professor. She holds a PhD in Creative Writing from Aberystwyth University and an MFA from Sarah Lawrence. Her first novel is My Intended (Morrow, 2000). Her short fiction, some of which appeared in Folio, Pleaides, The Literary Review, and This Broken Shore, is collected in the volume, Cars and Other Things that Go Fast.  She also blogs about books, writing, and archery for the Huffington Post.
