WRITING REFERENCE #5 – This post is part of a series devoted to writing reference. For what it’s worth, this article poses ‘questions’ about short stories then provides ‘answers’. For many, entering a short story contest or seeking publication in an online magazine, are great ways to gain exposure. Don’t have the time to write a novel? Write a short story instead and use that as a publication credit! Even if you decide to self-publish (as opposed to going the mag or contest route) start somewhere, there’s no excuse to not get your name out there, if you call yourself a writer. As a reminder, I have listed all of the posts in this category, see below.
