Finding short story blogs is harder than one might think. Sure, there are short story friendly blogs. But this is not quite the same thing. Usually it means the blog is run by a novel reader/writer that is open to the idea of maybe trying a short story. It's a dicey prospect at best and can be a little disheartening if you're fond of the short fiction genre, especially if you're an independent author.
So I'm putting together a list of some short story related blogs (aside from this one, of course!) along with a description of the blog. You're not alone out there. There are others that share your interests. It just takes a little more work to find them.
Please feel free to add to this list.
Reading the Short Story- Written by literature teacher Charles E. May. His posts are meaty, so don't expect a fast read. Every post analyzes a short story of his choosing. Many of them are classics. This is a fantastic blog if you want an education in short stories. If nothing else, go through his past blog post titles and read the stories he analyzes.
The Future Fire Reviews- Not short story exclusive. However, they have staff members that actually enjoy reading short stories which is why I recommend them. Their reviews have no star rating but are very in-depth.
Scattershot Writing- Written by James Everington. A fellow short story writer, this blog is, in part, his own personal blog. His posts will give you a little of everything and are always entertaining to read. He enjoys featuring short stories by other authors including an ongoing blog series called "In Defense of Short Stories."
Short Sharp Reads- Written by Andrew Warwick. A short story writer who has decided to shine the spotlight on shorter works with this blog. The blog is still new but it seems his posts will include short story features, general news and possibly reviews
Novella Reviews- Run by novella writer, Jenna Anderson. She has a few other "on staff" reviewers listed which allows for a wide range of interests. She reviews novellas and short stories on this blog. In her review policies she lists that the blog is mainly a hobby so she will only be accepting stories that look interesting to her. But everyone is more than welcome to submit.
Short Story Symposium- Written by me =) This blog is designed to be a resource for those wanting to find shorter works to read. Excerpts and links are provided but no reviews.
