“The best such book on the market.”
–James L. Marra, Temple University
Writing Fiction has been in print for almost three decades and is now in its eighth edition. It is the most widely adopted creative writing textbook in the country.
It is both a guide to writing fiction and a short story anthology, containing chapters on subjects such as plot, characterization, point of view, and revision, as well as nineteen sample stories by such well known authors as Flannery O’Connor, Tobias Wolff, ZZ Packer, Richard Bausch, and Eudora Welty, and scores of writing exercises.
