Upcoming Events & Readings & Funtimes!vouched_

After a brief hiatus VOUCHED PRESENTS has returned to showcase and celebrate the anniversary of THE FIVE HUNDRED an Atlanta-based, online flash-fiction journal that challenges established and developing writers the opportunity to showcase their work. The only catch? To stay between four hundred and six hundred words.

Proudly hosted at The Goat Farm Arts Center in The Rodriguez Room, the event will feature readings by

Aric Davis
John Carroll
Amy Stufflebeam
Myke Johns
Daniel Lamb

The show begins at 8pm, admission is FREE and as the readings will contain mature content, it is recommended for audiences 18 and over only.


Aric Davis is married with one daughter and lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he worked for sixteen years as a body piercer; he now writes full time. A punk rock aficionado, Davis does anything he can to increase awareness of a good band. He likes weather cold enough to need a sweatshirt but not a coat, and friends who wear their hearts on their sleeves. In addition to reading and writing, he also enjoys roller coasters, hockey, and a good cigar.Aric is the author of seven books: From Ashes Rise: A Novel of Michigan, Nickel Plated, A Good and Useful Hurt, The Black Death: A Dead Man Novella, Rough Men, Breaking Point, and, three of which have been optioned for film.

John Carroll is not a narcissist. At least he, according to Hotchkiss’ seven deadly sins of narcissism, is not a narcissist. He just enjoys reading and writing about them, not to mention befriending them. If you’re friends with John Carroll, or even know him, you’re probably a narcissist. Congratulations! Also, he’s dedicated this reading to the love of his life, his dog, Jolene.

Amy Stufflebeam is a sorta kinda writer from Atlanta, GA. She is currently contributing regularly to the Five Hundred writing group and her flower-covered diary. In her spare time she likes to put makeup on people, jump into freezing lakes and collect vintage hats.

Myke Johns accepts partial blame for WRITE CLUB Atlanta, our fair city’s premier philanthropic competitive writing event. He is also a radio producer at Atlanta’s NPR station, WABE, and is the guitarist for Mice in Cars. And yet he managed to find forty five minutes to write, edit, and worry over whether this bio made him sound like an asshole.

Daniel Lamb can be found mixing things up behind the bar at Manuel’s Tavern. When not slinging booze your way, he spends his time writing, playing music, hanging out with his awesome wife Sarah, and frequenting events like Naked City, Carapace, and Write Club. Words at, Scene Missing Magazine, and of course, The Five Hundred.
