Host Rachel Carter speaks with author Lincoln Michel about short story collections on this latest episode of Novel Concept. The two discuss the short story industry, how to put together a collection, and what goes in to writing in a shorter form. They also look back on the 10 years they’ve known each other and how their position in the writing world has changed in the past decade. Michel’s own short story collection, Upright Beasts, is coming out October 13 with Coffee House Press. The book has already been positively reviewed in The New York Times and O, The Oprah Magazine. Michel is also the editor-in-chief of Electric Lit, and he’s a founding editor of Gigantic, a literary magazine for short prose.
Rachel Carter grew up surrounded by trees and snow and mountains. She graduated from the University of Vermont and Columbia University, where she received her MFA in nonfiction writing. She is the author of the So Close to You series with Harperteen. These days you can find her working on her next novel in the woods of Vermont.
