I’m Kristina T. Saccone, a writer, creative, and maker. At heart, I’m a storyteller with a particular love for the craft of speculative fiction, creative nonfiction, and the flash form. I edit Flash Roundup, a weekly email featuring the latest releases in flash fiction, and I’m working on an anthology project about caring for our aging parents.

I spent nearly a decade in public broadcasting at the PBS NewsHourColorado Public Radio, and Aspen Public Radio. Since then, I have been writing and communicating for nonprofit organizations. I currently lead the digital content team at The Aspen Institute.

Caring for Our Aging Parents Project

As one of the 1/4 of adults in their 40’s or 50’s caring for an aging parent, I have found strength and hope in stories about the ups and downs of caretaking. I’m pitching an anthology of flash-length stories (1,000 words or less), fiction and nonfiction, on the topic. Stay tuned to this space for more information, a call for submissions, and the latest about the project — or sign up for e-mail updates here.
