    Anthology

    Discussion in 'By the Genre' started by Thundair, Mar 25, 2021.

    When writing the blurb for your collection of short stories, do you use one line descriptions of each one or just a general synopsis of the lot? BTW this may not be the right place to post so please forgive an old man.

    An anthology is something you put together with works from different writers. A collection is work by a single author. For either one, I think it's best to go with an overall description of what the collection or anthology is about. I've never seen each story described (even briefly) for a collection or anthology.
