Amy Rossi is an MFA candidate in fiction at Louisiana State University. She is currently working on an “If You Need Me” flash series. You can find her work online in journals such as decomP, Monkeybicycle, and Hobart, and you can find her in a room by quoting Road House.

What did you like about the triptych challenge?

I was first drawn to the triptych challenge because the samples and description sounded like the perfect way to marry my interest in flash fiction and my pop culture sensibilities. Seldom do I find myself thinking about interesting factoids, narrative backstory, and my own motives as a writer simultaneously. What I ended up liking most of all was how the challenge inspired me to examine my word choice at a much closer level than I normally do in order to get the most out of each column.
