Short Story Reality

As many of you know, I'm putting together a short story collection. I've written about the difficulty of trying to get a collection published. Recently, a short story writer came to Skylight Books to promote her book of short stories. She said her agent wouldn't even send out the manuscript. Fortunately, she won a book contest that published her collection.

Here's an article sent to me from the Utne Reader on selling short stories. Click here. Thanks, Mark, for sending this link along.

I always think I'm not that into short stories, but then I'll read a collection and love it. Recent cases in point: Willful Creatures by Aimee Bender, and The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie.
