Kelly Link is one of the most influential short story writers in the modern era. As both a writer and as an independent publisher, Link has established an aesthetic that manages to reimagine both literary fiction and fantasy. On Friday, she’ll give a craft talk titled “A Vampire is a Flexible Metaphor.”
