Show Me Your Shorts – Writing and Submitting Short Stories for Publication
Laura K Marshall gives writers a step by step plan on how to write and submit short stories for publication.
“I love writing short stories,” said Laura K Marshall, author of the Amazing but True series. “It’s an art and a challenge to convey a story in such a brief format. With a novel you can use upward to 75,000 words to create your world and tell a story but with short stories your max is usually 10,000 words. The thrill of selling and seeing your stories in print is exhilarating. It can be addicting in a good way. I wrote this book because there weren’t any books that got down to the nuts and bolts of submitting. That’s what I tried to do with Show Me Your Shorts. I took all my learning and laid it out for other writers to learn how to do it too.”
