A creative writers' shelf should hold at least three essential books: a dictionary, a style guide, and Writing Fiction. Janet Burroway's bestselling classic is the most widely used creative writing text in America, and for more than three decades it has helped hundreds of thousands of students learn the craft. This new edition continues to provide advice that is practical, comprehensive, and flexible. Burroway's tone is personal and nonprescriptive, welcoming learning writers into the community of practiced storytellers. Moving from freewriting to final revision, the book addresses "showing not telling," characterization, dialogue, atmosphere, plot, imagery, and point of view. It includes new topics and writing prompts. And the examples and quotations throughout the book feature a wide and diverse range of today's best and best-known creators of both novels and short stories. This book is a master class in creative writing that also calls on us to renew our love of storytelling and celebrate the skill of writing well. There is a very good chance that one of your favorite authors learned the craft with Writing Fiction. And who knows what future favorite will get her start listening to this edition?… (més)

Fabulous craft book for writers and editors alike. ( )

Good tips on character, dialog, setting, etc. Lots of examples and many suggested readings. Also a fair number of prompts and exercises. This is probably better as a paper book that can be used as a running reference. As an audio book it is mostly inspiration, but I may return to sections later. ( )

Burroway was a textbook in a community college writing class I took. It is full of examples of good fiction, and ideas on how to write well. ( )

A holy grail for writers ( )

I first read Burroway's book in its second edition. Now in its tenth edition, Writing Fiction is even better. I recommend it for the beginning or more mature writer. ( )
