Charleston Music Hall

The festival's longest-running event exclusively devoted to fiction, Piccolo Fiction Spotlight invites four local and regional authors to present brief short stories. This year’s reading will again be held in the historic Charleston Music Hall, and, following recent tradition, each story will begin with the words "I ducked into the alley..."  

Julia Elliott is the author of the story collection The Wilds, chosen by Kirkus as one of the Best Books of 2014 and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice. Her first novel, The New and Improved Romie Futch, was published by Tin House books in October 2015. She lives in Columbia.

Benjamin Brandenburg is a former Columbia University graduate student and current bookstore clerk living in Charleston. His stories are sometimes published online, most recently at Hobart and Monkeybicycle.

In 2014, she was nominated for the AWP Journal Intro Award for Creative Non-Fiction. She has an MFA from Converse College and teaches writing workshops throughout the year, including Poses and Prose, a yoga + writing workshop. Her debut memoir, Monsoon Mansion (Little A Publishing, 2018), is set for an upcoming release.

Aaron Wood was born in Raleigh, NC. He and his wife moved to Charleston in 2013 to escape the winters of Appalachia. His fiction has been published in Charleston City Paper.
