May is Short Story Month! At least, it is according to Emerging Writers Network — and it seems to be catching on:
– BookFox has an all-time best short story list (held together by a “secret theme”)
– Poets&Writers presents an article making the case for National Short Story Month (after all, we have National Poetry Month)
– The literary magazine Ninth Letter posted a blog about in honor of Short Story Month
– Andrew’s Book Club features an appreciation of Alice Munro’s “Differently”
And of course, short stories aren’t just for the month of May … join me at Hugo House in July for The Art & Craft of the Short Story, Tuesday nights, 7-9, from July 7 to 28.
