Some Short Story Tips - via @amanda_pillar

This is a recent article that Amanda Pillar, an Australian author and editor, posted last week. Literarium's tool set is focussed towards short fiction writers, mostly because compared to novelists they have a high submission rate and a lot of work flow to manage and track, so I thought this would be a nice bookmark to have.

Her quick list of Dos-and-Don'ts is a pretty good pocket guide for short fiction writers (and to be honest many of these things apply to writers across the board).

I'll add my own two entries (because I can):

  • DO be polite and professional in your cover letter
  • DO NOT act like a 4yo when your submissions are inevitably rejected
