St. Petersburg, FL - Michael C. White, author of A Brother's Blood (Harper Collins), a NY Times Book Review Notable Book of 1996 as well as a Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection contributes to annual Word Smitten event.

Author and creative writing instructor Michael C. White will judge WordSmitten's annual Storycove Flash Fiction Contest, officials from the international literary magazine WordSmitten announced today.

White, the author of many novels, (newest release is Soulcatcher) also is the founding editor of the yearly anthology American Fiction and editor of Dogwood: A Journal of Poetry and Prose.
Renowned for packed classrooms, Michael C. White, Ph.D., is a professor of English at Connecticut's Fairfield University where he teaches fiction, writing workshops and literature courses.

His novel, The Blind Side of the Heart (Harper Collins) was an alternate Book-of-the-Month Club selection. He is noted for A Dream of Wolves (Harper Collins), which received starred reviews from Publisher's Weekly and Booklist.

The Garden of Martyrs, White's recent novel, was published by St. Martin's Press and is a historical novel based on an actual miscarriage of justice. The story unravels a fact-based plot set in New England during the rampant anti-Irish, anti-Catholic sentiments which were prevalent during the late century. Look for it online and in stores this spring.

His short fiction has been nominated for a National Magazine Award and a Pushcart, and has won first prize in the Advocate Newspapers Fiction Award. For writing tips from Michael C.
