Short Story Quizzes & Trivia

Short story is a type of writing which involves a story told in a short amount of time or space. Short stories are often viewed as the opposite of novels. While some authors might write novels, others write short stories.

What many people mistakenly believe is that a short story is a mere few pages. While the name “short” does imply that it is not long, what one must take into account is that the term “short story” was derived as the opposite of long novels produced throughout historical periods of time. Authors today can cultivate short stories that are a mere two or three pages, all the way through one hundred pages broken up into smaller stories of ten pages each. If you love writing and know a lot about short stories, try your luck with one of our quizzes.
