Beginning with Burroway

For all of you aspiring fiction writers out there... you need this book. It will reveal the most common mistakes beginners make as well as the complexities of fiction writing--in detail. With each instruction there are questions for study and wonderful short story selections that teach as models. If you've taken a college fiction writing course you probably already have this text. If you took the course and weren't assigned Burroway's essential lessons... shame on your professor.
