Short Story Critique

Besides being amazing writers, what does F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Lydia Davis, Flannery O’Connor, and Ernest Hemingway all have in common?

They all loved and revered the short form narrative.

The short story is arguably the most dominant form of storytelling today. Society still has a never-ending thirst for the latest tale, but free time has become a precious commodity, and people are becoming pickier on how they choose to spend what little time they have.

A generation ago, it wasn’t uncommon for an entire house party to revolve around the host’s retelling of a recent adventure.

Believe it or not, that ritual hasn’t vanished. We’ve simply replaced them with “Lost” or “Grey’s Anatomy” parties. The fact of the matter is: the short story will remain relevant as long as the world continues to move at such a breakneck pace. It’s the best medium for the modern lifestyle.

As a writer, it’s your goal to inject your own philosophies into society’s collective consciousness in the most effective, efficient way possible. If you’re having issues finishing your short story, StoryCrafters, Ink. can help.
