Description: For many students of short fiction, a story ends with the final word. But the words on the page are only half of the equation, and when readers become aware of the process behind these stories, as well as the challenges the author encountered and how he or she worked through them, the reader not only becomes engaged with the content but also becomes a more critical student of technique; recognizing authorial decisions and strategies that can be employed in their own writing. This collection of short fiction centered around the theme of "coming of age", with analytical and instructional essays and exercises by the authors, is designed to offer fiction writers a guided tour of craft, as well as techniques for their own story writing.
