Congratulations to Robert Cremins

The Aletheia congratulates Robert Cremins, a faculty member and academic advisor at the University of Houston’s Honors College, for publishing his short story “The Apprentices” in the summer 2012 issue of The Dublin Review. “The Apprentices” is the fourth story Cremins has published in TDR.

In addition to his short prose, the native Dubliner has also published two novels: A Sort of Homecoming (Norton, 2000) and Send in the Devils (Spectre, 2001).

Remembering Ray Bradbury

In memory of Ray Bradbury, here is a great video of him speaking at Point Loma Nazarene University in 2001. He discusses his development as a writer as well as his philosophies about craft. One of my favorite quotes comes at about 3:05. Though Bradbury is speaking about fiction, you can easily substitute “poem,” “essay,” or “play” where he says “short story”:

“The best hygiene for beginning writers, or intermediate writers, is to write a hell of a lot of short stories. If you could write one short story a week – it doesn’t matter the quality of it – at least you’re practicing. And at the end of the year you have fifty-two short stories. And I defy you to write fifty-two bad ones. Can’t be done.”

Enjoy.
