I’ve realized recently how important it is to share short works — poems, creative non fiction, flash CNF — that I’ve read and been bowled over by. The audience for a lot of short literary work is narrow, and can always do with being boosted.
“We Were the Wild Hunt” is a short flash creative nonfiction piece by Myna Chang that was an easy first choice. Published by the literary magazine CRAFT, this short piece is simply perfect: the right length, the right tone, the right perspective, and it sparks with magic and the trauma at its heart.
I’ve read it multiple times already and I know I’ll return to it again.
