The Short Review

shining the spotlight on short story collections

Week Links: New Year’s Revolutions

It seems 2013 was the year of the short story.

A bit early, perhaps, to think about next year but writer Jonathan Gibbs is looking for someone who’d like to take over his daily tweet @365daystory. The deadline’s today so if you’d like to commit to a year-long story tweet, get in touch with him on Twitter.

Writer and translator, George Szirtes undertook a similar project, Langoustine, (“A philosophical marine romance”) which has just been published by Miel.


Meanwhile The Hungry Reader will read one short story every day in 2014. You can submit stories or join the project as a reader.

Lindsay Hunter’s Brenda’s Kid at Wigleaf is the best thing I’ve read this week. I’d like her collection, Don’t Kiss Me.
