The State of Short Fiction: In Print, Online, and in E-Books
Tuesday, June 5th at the Hyatt Regency, Bethesda, MD
Recent postings on the Short Mystery Fiction Society’s Listserv questioned if a “Renaissance of shorts in short fiction” were occurring. And it’s perhaps easy to see what prompted that discussion. While the oldest of the digest journals, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, recently celebrated its seventieth anniversary, other journals — both in print and online — are sprouting up regularly, and booms in e-publishing have also resulted in a bonanza of short-story collections being no more than a few clicks away.
Steve Weddle, NEEDLE editor, will join Brian Lindenmuth and Sandra Ruttan of Snubnose Press, to discuss (with moderator Art Taylor) the state of short fiction.
