Short Stories Are Not Baby Novels
Due to their length, short stories are often seen as the “first step” towards writing longer works, that one can “graduate” from writing short to long fiction. Editors and writers of the form will discuss the traits unique to short fiction and what you can do with them that can’t be done with novels: from structures, to story types, to common slips, to writing approaches.
Jaymee Goh (m), Todd Sanders, José Pablo Iriarte, Erin Roberts, and S.B. Divya
