Marion Zimmer Bradly on What is a Short Story


This was written by her a while ago (well, she's been dead for a while, too).

I still think it's worthwhile. Short stories are important, and not as easy to write as they look.

Read her take here:

]Marion Zimmer Bradley on What Is A Short Story?

What did you take from her explanation?

Re: Marion Zimmer Bradly on What is a Short Story


Nice succinct article. emoticon I think that this is probably some very good advice for the new/developing author.

I have read many stories that did not fit the mold that she lays out, but, if I am going to be honest about it, those stories were generally by already established authors.

The newly published authors do seem to fit a lot of these points very neatly.
