May is Short Story Month!

Happy Short Story Month 2014! Once again, we’ll be celebrating short stories all month here at Fiction Writers Review. This months we have interviews, reviews, and craft essays, as well as the return of our “Stories We Love” series: writers on the stories that inspire them—and why. So here’s to our sixth great May full of short fiction. We hope you’ll join us regularly throughout the next few weeks, and that you’ll help us spread the word. Thank you!
