Life in Short is part poetry, part prose and all about the beveled angles of living. Dasha Kelly Hamilton is a poet laureate, a published author and a seasoned storyteller. The collection of micro stories –all 100-words apiece– is described as a “memoir in moments.” Kelly Hamilton began writing the personal vignettes back in 2015 and emailing them weekly to a growing subscribers’ list. In the spare space, she crafts robust stories about growing up as an Army brat, stumbles as a quirky preteen, world travels as a writer and performer, and indelible lessons about sex, race, parenting, and pancakes. Life in Short is published as part of an encore residency with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center.
