On September 22 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time, Sisters in Crime will launch a webinar series on short stories: “Short and Sweet: The Art and Craft of Short Mystery Fiction,” which I’m honored to host. Here’s the description from the website:
In the first of four sessions on the craft of writing short mystery fiction, Art Taylor walks you through the basics of writing short stories: what is a short story, what is its history, and what you can expect when you read one. We’ll be joined by Steph Cha, editor of The Best American Mystery and Suspense 2021, who will talk to Art about what’s going on in the world of short mystery fiction right now.
Be sure to register now, and look forward to future events on plot and structure (with Barb Goffman), on prose (with E.A. Aymar), and on endings (with Toni L.P. Kelner).
