Are you keeping up with Short Story Month? Be sure to check the #ssm2011 hashtag on Twitter!
Another segment of Short Story Month: the Collection Giveaway Project on the Fiction Writers Review (FWR) blog. Check out the ever-growing list of participating bloggers (and the titles that are available for YOU to win!).
Also on FWR: tremendous story-focused content. Among my faves: Laura Furman on choosing the PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories; Anne Stameshkin on Lesley Dormen’s “The Old Economy Husband”; and yours truly on Five Ways to Celebrate Short Stories.
Speaking of short stories, I’m proud to announce that my story, “The Kiss,” is now live on Literary Mama.
More wonderful writing exercises from Midge Raymond.
Dinty W. Moore recommends six memoirs.
And while we’re on the subject of nonfiction: Linda K. Wertheimer shares lessons learned at the recent Grub Street Muse & the Marketplace conference in Boston.
More from Massachusetts: This weekend will bring the Massachusetts Poetry Festival. Although I can’t attend, one of my poems will be there, stitched within The Poetry Dress. (Thanks to Chloe Yelena Miller for bringing this project to my attention.)
