shining the spotlight on short story collections
It’s been a while since we blogged here at The Short Review Towers, so here’s a quick one to provide you with an ENORMOUS list of short story collections to read and more ideas… First, the longlists for the 2013 Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and Edge Hill Short Story Prize – both for short story collections – were announced recently, and great longlists they are, filled with inspiration to fill your bookshelves.
Second, several years ago the excellent Emerging Writers Network in the US declared May to be Short Story Month, and who are we to argue? So, today, May 1st, kicks it all off… find out more about what EWN are up to here, if previous years are anything to go by, there will be many many links and posts over the month to give us all ideas for new reading material, new favourite authors.
