New Fiction by Widener Faculty Member

April 19, 2012

When referring to Michael Cocchiarale, an associate professor of English, students in Widener’s creative writing program often shorten his eleven-letter surname name to simply “Dr. Cosh.” Short is apropos because Cocchiarale is a skilled writer of short stories. His new book, Still Time, was released this week by Fomite Press and is available through Amazon and in the Widener Bookstore.

The collection includes twenty-five short stories — some as short as two pages,  a style known as flash fiction — while others run a more traditional length of several thousand words.  A number of his stories featured in the collection have been published online, including “Opposites,” an evocative flash fiction piece, and  “Retroactive Special,” a funny yet poignant story about the passing of time.
