I'm just throwing it out there, but I kinda think a sort of sister-site with fiction (short-stories, poems, etc) would be a neat idea.
I've been trying for two years to get HP to put together a QUALITY fiction section. With Kindle and Ipad and all the writer-friendly aps for cheap publication, and with the writer lure that HP has, it could be awesome and popular.
The American Idol of online fiction.
Not like they don't have all the talent they need in every aspect of it right here already. All the technical people, all the literary qualifications, etc.
I'd even run it for them if they'd respond to my suggestions in these threads or the two or three emails I've sent. Eventually they'll see it, or someone else will see it and, with a little "re-invention of the wheel" pull the creative writers off.
Well, I'm glad someone agrees with me. I think a fiction section would be a great addition, since I know personally, I love writing, but articles and I don't get along.
I know I'd be much more active if I could post some of my short stories, or poems.
You can still post your stories and poems - a lot of writers here do.

So, do you think if we get enough people talkingabout it, that it could happen?

Let's support our own efforts by reading each other's short stories, then leaving a comment at the bottom of the hub (pro or con). I have three stories posted at jfrankdunkin.hubpages.com. They are, "The Baroness of Haut De Cagnes", "Recess, the Podium Light", and...

I truly love the short story, and often wonder why there aren't more authors in the genre. Is it a lack of interest by the readers, or the writers, or both? Am I wrong, and why? Any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I am a young adult and juvenile fantasy writer and would like to write short stories to publish on Hubpages. Is this a good fit for Hubpages? I notice many of the articles under poetry, books and writing ask questions or do book reviews.

If you got this week's newsletter, you'll see I mentioned three new podcasts we'e doing. One, which has yet to make its debut, is called the Fascinating Fiction podcast, and will consist of readings of short fiction stories on HubPages (both by Hubbers who are willing to record mp3s and...

Good writing won't save a bad story. Bad writing won't necessarily kill a good story. Thoughts?I read something along these lines recently and I can't remember who wrote it. King? Hemingway? There's no excuse for poor writing, but I'm thinking about the value of a good...
