The World’s Shortest African American Story

The last Sistuh alive sat alone in a cell. There was a lock on her womb.

Wanda Coleman  

Wanda Coleman has been a Guggenheim fellow, Emmy-winning scriptwriter, former columnist for the Los Angeles Times Magazine, and recipient of a 1989 California Arts Council grant in fiction. Her stories have appeared in Obsidian III, Other Voices, and Zyzzyva. Her books include A War of Eyes and Other Stories; Bathwater Wine, winner of the 1999 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize; a novel, Mambo Hips & Make Believe; and Mercurochrome: New Poems, which was a bronze-medal finalist for the National Book Award. In 2003–04, she became the first literary fellow of the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
