Hybrid is honored to announce our second publication, John Minichillo’s The Last Workshop. The famous writer is dying — maybe — and this smart, funny, and sharp novel follows the alumni of the Deep South Writers’ Workshop as they struggle to internalize the end of the writer’s career.


John Minichillo’s novel, The First Woman on Mars is forthcoming from Spaceboy Books. His novel, The Snow Whale, was an Independent Publishers Book Awards regional gold medalist for the West-Pacific and an Orion Magazine Book Prize notable. He wrote the column, “How to Be a Better Teacher-Person Through Apathy” at McSweeney’s Internet Tendency as one of the winners of their column contest.

His science fiction novel, EOB: Earth Out of Balance, out now on Kindle Press, was described as ‘one of the smartest, funniest, best-developed novels of any genre.’

John is the recipient of a Tennessee Individual Artists Grant and lives and teaches in Nashville.
