The Art of the Short Story


“The short story apologizes for nothing. It exults in its shortness” said Stephen Milhauser.

The short story is a unique form. A condensed expression of ideas and words, both reading and writing short stories are very different experiences to reading or writing novels.

Join some of our finest Northern Irish short story writers for an in-depth discussion on the creative process of short story writing, and reading.

Jan Carson, Wendy Erskine and Jamie Guiney will be discussing what drew them to the short form, the special skills involved in writing short stories, their influences and the present and future of the short story.
