And here it is, an official announcement from Dan Wickett at Emerging Writers Network that May is "Short Story Month." Boy, the power of the blogger…I hope I won’t get carried away, and, you know, declare that July is “Pay Writers Five Contributors’ Copies Instead of Two” Month or something.
Seriously, though, Dan does great work at his blog and is a tireless promoter of new literary fiction. You would be well advised to check him out and join his (free) network.
Also, glance through some of the poems that he’s been running for National Poetry Month. They were written by kids as part of Houston Writers in the Schools . Some of them are awesome!
