Kris Kristofferson’s 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.
Kris Kristofferson Short Stories -Mostly fiction?
An extract from the 2009 interview:
“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.”Kris Kristofferson
Assuming that school meant college – These stories would date after 1954 and before Kris joined the army.
