CORA: Diversity Roll Call: Short Story Stroll

A few days short for a new assignment. This time we look at short stories. Choose a single author or an anthology. Introduce us to new writers or a new niche. Micro fiction anyone? Preferably choose writers or color, but if you think there is a particular collection or theme that is rarely spotlighted, enlightened us.

Give us a list of your favorite short story titles. Do a profile of a short story author. What were your favorite short story reads this year?

Hey, with the all that happened this week, we're extending the assignment till September 25th. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, going to do a random drawing for a collection of Latin American short stories.

You know the drill, post your feature to your own blog and come back here and leave us a link using Mr. Linky. Happy reading.

Hey Susan,

There is one anthology that I really love by ZZ Packer. I put my post in Mister Linky. :)

Aha! I made it just in time this week! I've posted on Toni Cade Bambara's "The Lesson" from her collection, Gorilla, My Love. I put it up on Mr. Linky and I'm off to explore the others...!
