Week Eight Judge: Beth Deitchman

Our final week will be judged by LCP’s own Beth Deitchman!

Beth Deitchman has been a dancer, a university lecturer, and an actor. While studying Spanish in Panama in 2011 she re-discovered her passion for writing and has been scribbling ever since. Co-founder of Luminous Creatures Press, she has authored two books of the Regency Magic Series, Mary Bennet and the Bloomsbury Coven and Margaret Dashwood and the Enchanted Atlas, and co-authored two collections of short stories with fellow Creature Emily June Street. Beth is currently working on a novel about ballet dancers. She lives in Northern California with her husband Dave and dog Ralphie.

Beth has this to say about what Kind of flash fiction she likes: “Every word matters, so I like them to be well-chosen. I prefer stories with an arc over meditations on a theme or image. I also want some juicy narrative tension. And I admire panache.”
