Summary

Brief, practical, and wonderfully readable, The Art and Craft of Fictiongives aspiring writers all they need in under 300 pages. Michael Kardos focuses on technique and presents fiction writing as a teachable (and learnable) art. With an organization built on methods and process rather than traditional literary elements, Kardos helps students begin their stories, write strong scenes, use images and detail, revise for aesthetics and mechanics, and finish and polish their own stories. He delivers clear instruction, effective examples, and assignments that build toward finished work in a tone reviewers praise as "pitch perfect." A brief fiction anthology at the back of the book of 15 works that Kardos draws on in his instruction provides stories that students will love to be inspired by.
