Here's the official spiel:
Flash fiction is perfect for your coffee break, your commute, or whenever you have a few minutes for yourself. Crafted with gemlike precision, every flash fiction piece tells a complete story, never using more than a thousand words.
The Best of Every Day Fiction Two brings together one hundred flash fiction pieces selected from Every Day Fiction’s second year of publication.
Following the success of The Best of Every Day Fiction 2008, this volume brings you a hundred more bite-sized tastes of science fiction, humour, romance, fantasy, horror, and surrealism along with more traditional literary pieces, from authors all over the world. Whatever your fiction preferences might be, this book is sure to introduce you to some new favourite authors and perhaps expand your literary horizons.

It is a one-week program including class time with some of Canada's best writers. The location is gorgeous, the food delicious, and there is plenty of free writing time. I loved the people there who were sincerely interested in my progress.
Here's the note I received along with all previous participants that I am posting here for any of you who are interested.:

Other pieces featured this month include Jodi MacArthur's "The Sower," Megan Arkenburg's "Fugitive 135711400," DJ Barber's "Wanderers Two," and C. L. Holland's "On the Penitent's Road."
Is it time for me to begin listing my new year's resolutions? Probably, but I'm not up for it tonight. The Ducks lost, UCLA lost, bad times for the Pac 10, but mostly, me? I'm just tired. So I'll start some of my new year tomorrow and Sunday, but the real beginning will be Monday morning. Back to the routine which I have to admit I like.
