Participants: Young-ha Kim, Dafna Zur, Etgar Keret, Abdourahman Waberi and Ingo Schulze (Moderated by Radhika Jones)
"Short Stories" was an outstanding panel. Jones asked very direct questions that not only got the writers talking about their work but also generated discussion between writers. I'm sure that these writers have talked on numerous occasions about their interest in the short story, its status among other literary genres, and the different ways they approach writing. Even so, there were numerous moments of "thinking out loud," of discovery and unveiling.
