0NoneNoneNone
Short story publishing is flourishing in the twenty-first century and is no longer seen as a poor relation of the novel. But what is a short story?? And how do you write one? Robert Graham takes you through everything you need to know, from how a writer works to crafting and editing your own fiction.

The book features chapters from writer-teachers James Friel, Rodge Glass, Ursula Hurley, Heather Leach, Helen Newall, Jenny Newman, James Rice and Tom Vowler.… (more)
