Editorial Reviews

Review

“A particularly valuable ingredient of [Dufresne's] advice is the inclusion of detailed, encouraging, and relatively unique writing prompts. . . . For established and aspiring authors alike . . . this book will be illuminating, instructive, and yes, inspiring.”
- Publishers Weekly

“[Dufresne] provides many samples of flash fiction, including graphic ones, by a wide array of writers . . . with some sharp critical analysis, prompts, and exercises along the way. . . . [A] good place to learn how to write some really, really short [stories].”
- Kirkus Reviews

About the Author
