Write It Short, Sell It Now Short stories and personal essays have never been hotter--or more crucial for a successful writing career. Earning bylines in magazines and literary journals is a terrific way to get noticed and earn future opportunities in both short- and long-form writing.Writing & Selling Short Stories & Personal Essays capitalizes on the popularity of these genres by instructing on the two key steps to publishing short works: crafting excellent pieces and successfully submitting them. You'll learn how to:
  • Develop different craft elements--including point of view, character, dialogue, scene writing, and more--specifically for short stories and essays.
  • Recognize the qualities of excellent short works, using examples from recently published stories and essays in major journals.
  • Understand the business of writing short, from categorizing your work and meeting submission guidelines to networking and submitting to writing contests.
  • Master the five-step process for submitting and selling like a pro.
Featuring advice and examples from a multitude of published authors, Writing & Selling Short Stories & Personal Essays is a must-have for any writer's bookshelf.
