QUICK LIT TREND OF THE WEEK! It's All About the Short Story!

This "literary trend-the short story" is always a winner when deciding to express yourself ! Short stories, short stories we can't get enough of short stories!  

Short Story-is a work of fiction that is usually written in prose, often in narrative format. The term covers a wide variety of narratives-from stories in which the main focus is on the course of events to studies of character, from the "short short" story to extended and complex narratives. Most often the short story is restricted in character and situation and is concerned with creating a single, dynamic effect. Its length usually falls between 2,000 and 10,000 words.

Many great authors have written classic short stories that are still read today such as; Shirley Jackson, John Steinbeck, J.D Salinger, Philip Roth, Grace Paley, John Updike, Joyce Carol Oats, Karen Russell, Jacob Appel and many others. Get your read on with some classic and modern short stories today!


Classic, a great way to express yourself in a short way, and always on trend. The short story will continue to capture the hearts of readers from now until the end of time.
