5.0 out of 5 stars Mastering the short story form 10 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was on my recommended reading list for a short story Module at University and proved extremely useful. It is a lovely, light hardback book, complete with dust jacket comprising 90 pages. Extremely useful advice for anyone who writes or is interested in short stories. Highly recommended.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I again purchased this book whilst at uni, I was at the time studying a creative and transformative writing module and found this book very helpful when it came to writing a short story to be marked and put towards my final grade, it's easy to read and enjoyable, I also lent this book to a fellow student who took the main creative writing module in her last year and she said she had also found it extremely helpful and good to read.
