May is Short Story Month – 2017 Edition

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

Happy Short Story Month 2017!

For the last nine years we’ve celebrated May as Short Story Month, dedicating our content to the short form. As always, we’ve lined up some wonderful content, featuring the work of or conversations with such authors as Tim Weed, Laura Thomas, Alexander Weinstein, N. West Moss, David Ebenbach, Keith Lesmeister, Andrew Porter, Jack Driscoll, and more. 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.
