It may or may not have escaped your notice that this week was NATIONAL SHORT STORY week. (Leaving aside questions about which or whose ‘nation’) I’ve decided to THROW OPEN the doors of the IEBR review and throw down the gauntlet. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to use the comments section to give a short review of a short story or short story collection (complete with link)
Now, we are not talking about a standard CRITICAL review here. It’s more like a ‘pitch’ in fact and it can be sent in by the writer him/her self or by a reader.
What we’re looking for is something like this:
Girls and Boys Come out to Play. Debut short story writer Kirsty Eccles shows that when Charity begins at home there can be dire consequences. An unhappy little tale which would make Pudsey weep! Available FREE at McStorytellers.
So that’s it folks. Sell us your short story in the comments section and lets see how many short stories we can find before the end of the week.
