This one hundred page guide introduces students to the various elements of fiction, and includes information on writing about the short story. Based on current composition theory, students are taken through the various stages of the writing process, beginning with brainstorming and free writing activities, and they can read papers that beginning students have written over the years. This guide also includes information on quotation and documentation, a brief overview of additional resources available for studying the short story, including those on the Internet, and a list of the available film adaptations of stories in the anthology.
