Patricia Cleasby Posted over 4 years ago How do you see the future of literature? Do yo think that shorter forms such as poetry and microstories will gain more weight? I think that novels will be important tomorrow, as they are now. It is currently the only way to be immersed in a version of reality, that is specifically not one's own. While movies and tvs may give a person the satisfaction of a short story, a novel can thread one through complicated understandings.
