The idea for the EWN in 2012 is going to be various as usual. I hope to review specific short stories from both journals and collections, I hope to review a few collections as well. I will have guest posts from authors and editors alike. I'll post some old "classic" EWN short story collection reviews. I will do some "advertising." That is, do posts of collections I've not yet had the pleasure of reading but will post the collection's cover, some jacket copy and a blurb or two. I'll probably promote some forthcoming collections and I'll do my best to link to all the other blogs or website that are celebrating National Short Story Month this May. It's year six here at the EWN--I hope many other sites join in.
