Today, the online lit community is mourning Cami Park, whose fierce very short fictions could be read all over the place in web and in print.
View her full archive here — it’s a pretty fantastic mix of stuff.
Cami is one of those people who ought to have had a book by now, but didn’t. …She was a semi-finalist for last year’s Rose Metal Press chapbook competition. I would love to see somebody speak to whoever they’d have to speak to in order to posthumously release that book, or else a separately compiled collection of her work.

thanks for posting this, Tim. Wonderful idea.
I second that, Tim. I think a lot of people would love to have a book of Cami’s amazing words.
Wow. I just saw this on Facebook. I’m pretty much speechless. Cami Park was a great writer, and I agree that someone needs to figure out how to do a book posthumously, if possible.
Thanks for posting this, Tim. I’m afraid I didn’t know her, or her work. Tadd and Rebekah filled me in a little this evening. I’ll be reading it. Meanwhile, many condolences to her family and loved ones.
I like this poem:
This is very sad news! Condolences to her family and loved ones.
