celebrate short fiction

National Short Story MonthI noticed that Poets & Writers magazine is making a case for the concept of May being National Short Story Month.

Well, as someone who writes and reads short fiction I think it’s a fine idea. The Emerging Writers Network is behind the campaign, and is blogging all month with reviews of short fiction to lend momentum to the movement.

There are a multitude of online sources for short speculative fiction, and here is just a small sample:

E-Zines

Podcast Magazines

Don’t forget to give some love to the print magazines, and the many excellent print collections in your brick and mortar bookshops too.

So why not read and/or download some short stories during May?
