1. You are to evaluate a short story and give your recommendation to the publisher.
2. You are to indicate what drew you to this story. Comment about the central idea of the story and which elements made an impact upon you.
3. For example, discuss what elements about this story you found to be poignant, endearing, humorous, ironic, thought provoking, disconcerting or touching. (5 or 6 paragraphs).
As a member of the literature review committee that will determine which stories will be included in the quarterly short story journal, this solution responds to the questions regarding evaluating a short story on a number of dimensions for inclusion e.g. what you drew from the story, the emotional impact, etc.
