Tom Bailey's On Writing Short Stories offers a fascinating introduction to writing fiction and the short story by bringing together eight original essays by professional writers and more than 20 exemplars of short fiction. The first part features essays that take the student through theprocess of writing by well-known authors such as Francine Prose, Joyce Carol Oates, and Andre Dubus. These essays focus on the characteristics and craft of the short story and its writer, and take the student from the workshopping process all the way through the experience of working with agents andpublishers. The second part of the text is an anthology of stories - many referred to in the essays - that gives readers dynamic examples of technique brought to life. Finally, the third part offers further advice on publishing work, and includes a listing of magazines, journals, quarterlies andonline sources to which short fiction can be submitted.
