Have you ever written a story you just loved but for some reason no one wants to publish? That’s the point of our new column: Help, I Don’t See The Problem!
For this column we need some brave writers who aren’t afraid to let us edit their story publicly in the pages of LSS, much like what is done with query letters over at QueryShark. This public critique won’t just go into punctuation or grammar problems but will be more like a substantive edit for short stories. In this way we will be able to help many of our writers/readers at once rather than just a few in private. The author will have a choice in whether they want their real name published with their story, or be listed under a pen name. If you’re interested in submitting to this column, include the word HELP in the subject line of your email followed by the title of your story.
Submissions for the column Help, I Don’t See The Problem should not be over 1000 words. When submitting to this column you are granting the editors of A Long Story Short permission to publish a critique of your story.
