The Art of Writing Short Stories
Moderator: Mike Black
Frank Zafiro, Mark Bergin, Rcih Wickliff, Jim Guigli Mysti Berry
The short version of what they all said:
Short stories are about the moment.
The problem and the resolution of the problem.
Voice is important.
The story has to reach up and grab you. It should focus on the crisis.
The first paragraph must grab the reader.
Again, this was from the notes I took.
