    Short stories and novellas have become increasingly popular for readers who want something quick to read on their ereaders, Ipads, Kindles and Nooks. Writers are trying to get more of their work in the hands of readers and they are turning increasingly to writing short stories as a way to quickly get content out there. In other words, the short story and novella market has heated up in the past few years, aided by the popularity of e-publishing and e-reading.

    But short stories and novellas aren’t as easy to write as you might think. They can be every bit as challenging as a full length novel. Get the scoop on writing a short story or novella that will have readers clamoring for more of your work.

    Find out how the story structure works, how to get your tale told in fewer words, how to develop characters and plots for the shorter formats and how to get those short stories published from a writing mentor and coach who has written countless short stories and had stories published online and in anthologies.
