May is Short Story Month – 2015 Edition

Join us for our seventh-annual celebration of the Short Story, as we dedicate the month of May to short fiction.

Happy Short Story Month 2015! For the last seven years we’ve celebrated May as Short Story Month, dedicating our content to the short form. As always, we’ve lined up some wonderful features:

  • Interviews with Kelly Link, Peter LaSalle, Kelly Luce, Megan Mayhew Bergman, Nathan Poole, Rebecca Makkai, Liam Callanan, Robin McLean, and others;
  • Reviews of new story collections from Matt Sumell, Diane Cook, Antonio Tabucci, and more; and
  • Stories We Love posts on work by Adam Haslett, Charles Baxter, and Julia Elliott, to name a few.

We hope you’ll join us regularly throughout the next few weeks, and that you’ll help us spread the word. In the meantime, here’s a 2011 guest post from Dan Wickett of The Emerging Writers Network and Dzanc Books on the origins of Short Story Month.
