Aims and Scope
Short Fiction in Theory & Practice provides an international forum for all those writing, reading, translating or publishing the short story, in all its diversity – including flash fiction, the novella, cycles, sequences, anthologies and single-author collections; hypertext, popular fiction (e.g. science fiction, horror), the prose poem, the non-fiction story and other hybrid genres. It looks at the short story from the practitioner’s viewpoint; we are concerned with the ongoing process and philosophy of composition rather than the ‘postevent’ dissection of literary texts.
