Well, it’s been an amazing (not even) two months. To the point that it’s sometimes hard to believe Little Fiction has only been around for such a brief period. And of course, it goes beyond those two months for the short story. We talked about what a great time it is for the art form here. It’s a resurgence that has been led by many authors, small presses and independent journals. 2011 was even proclaimed Year of the Short Story.
And that brings us to 2012. Little Fiction is going to come out of the gate with two new stories on January 4th: Sacrificial Lamb by Selaine Henriksen and Paint By Numbers by Will Johnson (you can see the covers here.)
Those two stories will kick off our new-found publishing schedule. The plan is to put out stories (at least two at a time) on the first Wednesday of every month (seemed fitting to choose Twitter’s #WriterWednesday).
The schedule for the near future will be February 1, March 7 and April 4. And will feature stories from Leesa Cross-Smith, Jay Hosking, Will Johnson (once again) and Dragnet co-founder Jeremy Hanson-Finger. Plus, many other fantastic writers that we’ll get around to naming soon.
And then there’s our Listerature compilation, which is taking shape rather amazingly. The deadline for submissions is January 31 and we’re looking to publish the collection on March 7.
We’re also planning some author interviews, and who knows what else. Hope you stick around, because it’s just getting good.
Thanks to all of you for giving us such a great start. And here’s to next year. Happy holidays.
