Episode 46: Was There A Golden Age of Short Stories?

In Episode 46, we do some myth-busting in our exploration of whether there was really a golden age of short stories. When was it? Were people really able to make a living writing short stories? What's the short story market like now? 

What we found out:

  • We're proponents of the theory that there was a long golden age
  • Maybe it was better
  • But it wasn't really that good

We talk about Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Gaskill and others, and we talk about what people say they get paid now.

Finally, we talk about the update Susan Dennard sent out to her earlier newsletter post, Income As A Writer - with comments from her agent Joanna Volpe. The original post is here.
