Submission Call from Hunger Mountain and the Future of the Short Story

Hunger Mountain YA and Children’s Editor Bethany Hegedus has posted a submission call on her blog :  ” The Hunger Mountain Children’s and YA page is now going to be rolling content, updating the site with new work every few weeks. We will still have themed issues… ” Check out my earlier interview with Bethany.

And author Matt Lapata tackles the future of the short story in this Glimmer Train posting: “Many still wonder why readership of fiction—and especially short fiction, in collections and magazines—has been in decline over the past, say, two decades. Often the problem is waved away by someone grumbling “TV” and “video games” and calling the matter settled. This same person, however, probably prefers novels to short stories, and the infamous TV can’t explain that.”
