Writers’ Workshop graduate Zachary Vickers will read from his collection of linked stories, Congratulations on Your Martyrdom!

Congratulations on Your Martyrdom! is one of the most addictive collections of short fiction I've read in years. Whimsical, wild and gleefully absurd to the point of wickedness, Vickers's stories revel in the collapse of American culture. Once these stories grab, they do not let go." ―Jessica Anthony

Zachary Tyler Vickers was a Provost’s Fellow while at Iowa, and  is recipient of the Richard Yates Prize and the Clark Fisher Ansley Prize. His stories have appeared in The American Reader, KGB Bar Lit Journal, Hobart, Waccamaw, and elsewhere.
