Develop Your Skills with Short Fiction

How writing creatively pushes you to grow

Hi, Kelly Eden here from Medium,

My writing career began with short fiction.

Short stories are an interesting genre and one that really pushes your writing skills.

This week I was asked to be one of the Judges for an international writing competition for Twist and Twain which I’m very excited about. I’d love you to join me!

I want to hear your stories! Entries aren’t quite open yet but short fiction takes a while to develop, so I thought I’d give you a head start.

If you have a story idea you’ve been working on, here’s your motivation to perfect it. Or come up with a brand new idea.

Take a look at the winner and finalists from last month:

Even though I’ve built my career on non-fiction, short fiction writing helped me understand story-telling, dialogue, creative structure, and so much more. It’s also a lot of fun! I hope you give it a go.
