shining the spotlight on short story collections
May was declared National Short Story Month in the US by Dan Wickett of the Emerging Writers Network a few years ago, and, wonderfully, others have followed his lead. Doesn’t matter whether you are US-based, here’s a great excuse to celebrate the short story even more than we do already! A few links to get you started:
Emerging Writers Network – reviews and discussions of short stories
Fiction Writers Review – a giveaway in honour of SSM!
Canada’s National Post’s Short Story Month – Q&As with writers
BookFox’s Short Story Month posts – excellent short story discussions
NextRead – reviews of short story collections for Short Story Month
SeattlePI – article about SSM
Reading the Short Story – blog discussing short stories
And if that’s not enough – just check out all the short story collections and author interviews we’ve amassed in 2 1/2 years over at The Short Review, of course!
