by Rick DeMarinis

Art and Craft of the Short Story (ISBN10: 1884910459; ISBN13: 9781884910456)
ISBN13: 978-1884910456
ISBN10: 1884910459

Summary: When the editors of Story Press looked for an author to write the definitive book on the short story, they searched for someone who is a master of the form.

We were delighted that Rick DeMarinis, one of the most well-published and respected contemporary fiction writers and teachers agreed to write it. We are now delighted to offer this book to you.

DeMarinis explores every key element of writing the short story, including how to:

Gener ...show moreate, assess, and develop story ideas
Handle structure, characterization, and point of view
Meet the form's special needs for compression, focus and unity
Understand the nature of beginnings and endings
Develop and polish stories through revision

He covers each subject with the wisdom gained from working in this form for more than 25 years. He uses dozens of examples from classic short stories to develop his instruction and includes exercises in every chapter to help you apply the instruction to your own work. Five of his published stories appear in their entirety, allowing you to follow the creative process step by step.

The advice is presented in a voice filled with wit and candor. You feel as if you are speaking one-on-one with a mentor who provides clear guidance and yet allows you plenty of room for discovery. DeMarinis believes each story requires discovery, that new rules are created each time a story unfolds.

In his years of teaching, he has helped hundreds of students in some of the finest writing programs in the country. Now he has distilled those lessons into a book that gives you a new understanding of how short stories work. ...show less
