Symposium Session – The Art of the Short Story

The Art of the Short Story

Presented by Sarah Hans

Veteran short story writers and editors discuss what makes an effective, marketable short story.

The short story is an underappreciated art form very different from that of a novel. Published authors and editors discuss the realities of writing, editing, and selling short stories for cold, hard cash.


Editor, Sarah Hans.
