Kris Kristofferson Short Stories -Mostly fiction?
Kris Kristofferson short stories were published after he won a competition when he was a student.
Kris spoke about these fiction tales that were published in Atlantic Mag in an interview in 2009.
An extract from the 2009 interview: (link included. It’s a relaxed Q and A)
“I was writing short stories, and I remember that the biggest thing you could do in school then was they had an Atlantic Monthly short story contest, and I won it. I got first and third and a lot of honorable mentions……………………… I hope someday—and it’d better be fast—that I’ll start writing longer fiction.”
I assume that school meant college – So these stories would date sometime around or after 1954 and before he joined the army. I have requested permission to share them, but the copyright seems hard to find. To be on the safe side while still sharing them, I will be cautious and provide the links so fans can view them where they published.
Apologies for the inconvenience, but we always respect copyright.
