    The art of story-writing (1919) by J. Berg Esenwein PDF book

    The art of story-writing (1919) by J. Berg  Esenwein PDF book The present volume is based on actual experience in teaching the art of story-writing to several thousand pupils, both in the classroom and by correspondence. The standards of the text and its methods of approach are doubtless modified by the editorial and the story-writing practice of the authors, but always the chief thing in their minds has been to guide the student in the most effective and direct way to the actual fictional narration.

    Short story writing; a practical treatise on the art of the short story (1917) by Charles Raymond Barrett. THIS book is an attempt to put into definite form the principles observed by the masters of the short story in the practice of their art.

It is designed to be of practical assistance to the novice in short story writing, from the moment the tale is dimly conceived until it is completed and ready for the editor’s judgment. The…

    Egyptian tales ; PDF book translated from the Papyri BY William Petrie With Illustrations (1918) IT is strange that while literature occupies so much attention as at present, and while fiction is the largest division of our book-work, the oldest literature and fiction of the world should yet have remained unpresented to English readers. The tales of ancient Egypt have appeared collectively only in French, in the charming volume of Maspero’s ” Contes Populaires ” ; while some have been translated into English at scattered times in volumes of the ” Records of the Past.” But research moves forward ; and translations that were excellent twenty years ago may now…

    How to write short stories : (with samples) by  Ring Lardner (1924) Free Book A glimpse at the advertising columns of our leading magazines shows that whatever else this the country may be shy of, there is certainly no lack of correspondence schools that learn you the art of short-story writing. The most notorious of these schools make the boast that one of their pupils cleaned up $5000.00 and no hundreds of dollars writing short stories according to the system learned in their course, though it doesn’t say if that the amount was cleaned up in one year or fifty. However, for some reason another when your skin through the…
