Short and sweet, or short and bitter, however you like it. Short fiction lends itself to different types of storytelling, and the masters of the form can leave us feeling stunned, or elated, or destroyed – with just a few short pages of work.
O’Conner, Chekov, Dickens, Poe, Gaiman, Munro, Kafka, Swirsky – this list could be longer than some of their stories. It’s one of the most exciting corners of writing to visit because it’s so alive, with new talents constantly emerging. Online venues have given opportunity to many authors who might not otherwise have even tried to send their stories out into the world.
Here, we both publish short fiction and refer you to other great places it can be found. Like to feed your mind with smaller bites? Step into our kitchen….
