Fiction writing student Silas Matthies‘s short story, “Encounter” was published in Issue 96 of the literary magazine, The Iconoclast. The story is about a college student studying in Barcelona who has a girlfriend back in the States. His world is thrown off-kilter one day when he meets a femme fatale on the metro.

Silas recently received his certificate in creative writing, and says “I learned a great deal from all my teachers.” In particular he says that Lou Mathews, “taught me that concrete details told through the five senses are at the heart of good fiction.”
