Thresholds: home to the international short story forum

I am pleased to annouce that Thresholds is now up and running. Please register here and have a look around the site.

Thresholds is the only online forum dedicated to the writing, criticism and study of the Short Story. Undergraduate students are welcome to join the forum as Associate Members, with access to our extensive resource lists, articles, interviews and our student-led blog. Postgraduate students are invited to join our team of bloggers and contribute to a wide variety of discussions about academic life, their own research and writing projects, and literary news.

We will also run student-led writing workshops, and provide opportunities for peer review. Our inaugural edition contains an exclusive interview with the internationally acclaimed writer Hanif Kureishi who discusses his recently published Collected Stories. In October, we will host our first live Question & Answer session with Adam Marek, author of the weirdly wonderful collection Instruction Manual for Swallowing.

Contributions are welcome for the following departments: Featured Profiles, Recommended Reading, and Exercises.

Register now and make your voice heard!
