We Love Short Stories
Share |

Short stories are the first writing credits for many SinC members. They remain a tremendous avenue for new writers to break in; for published authors, they provide an opportunity to tell stories that would not support a novel or to hold reader interest between books. Other authors simply prefer the form. They're fun to write and fun to read.

At the same time, story markets have shrunk. Print magazines have lost subscribers and single-copy distribution, in chicken-and-egg fashion. Online magazines face other challenges, and typically offer limited payment. Anthologies fill some of the gap, but many offer writers only exposure--a boon to be sure but not one that pays the bills.

What's a writer or reader to do?  Our response is to begin a campaign to support the short story.

We all know that to write well in a form, we must read it. To help you with that assignment, we have arranged subscription discounts for members for several leading magazines in the crime fiction world that include short stories.

 Other markets may be added over time. Information and discount codes are available to members only, so you must sign into the website in order to obtain them.
