Today we kick off our twelfth-annual celebration of Short Story Month, dedicating our May content exclusively to the short form. As always, we’ve lined up some wonderful features:
- Interviews with Maria Adelmann, Mikhail Iossel, Alexander Weinstein, and others.
- Reviews of recent story collections by Claire Boyles, Carribean Fragoza, Haruki Murakami, Clare Sestanovich, and more.
- Essays on graphic story collections, ethnographic fiction, and the mellowing of the late Robert Stone.
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.
