Gravity Fiction is short stories by college writers from several different schools, with commentary on the craft of writing fiction.
There are a lot of very good stories being written each year by college students all over the U.S. They represent a bright future for fiction writers and readers.
Good examples written by students model the process of how fine writing is created – defining characters; sketching plot; creating spicy dialogue that reveals motivation and moves the plot forward; choosing just the right narrator and point of view; controlling rising action and climax; developing theme and motif; and finding voice through language, precision, focus, and economy of prose.
The commentaries make this an excellent addition to a college fiction writing course.
Whether you’re a serious student of fiction writing, a dabbler in writing stories, a teacher, or an avid reader and lover of good writing, these stories have something for you.
