By the Book: Diving into Short Stories

Short stories often get short shrift - but far from being the novel’s lesser cousin, short stories bring joys that are entirely their own, and require a rather different approach to write as well. So, we’re dedicating this show to the short stories, and joining us for the conversation is Ling Low, who was recently shortlisted for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize 2021. We wrap up the conversation by recommending some short stories and writers to check out.
