Portrait

Carolyn Lewis is an author and Creative Writing tutor who runs classes and workshops in the Bristol and North Somerset area. Her novel Missing Nancy was published in 2008 by Accent Press.

Zitat
"This book is clearly presented and well laid out. The text is supplemented by quotes from respected short story writers including Bristol's own Helen Dunmore and Tania Hershman. While Carolyn Lewis acknowledges that she can't teach the student how to write she can at least offer guidance on techniques. Aimed at those writing the traditional 3000 -7000 word short story, there are useful checklists on plotting, structure, editing and so on. Each section is followed by an exercise. There's also advice on getting published and a list of competitions. As a former chair of the judges of The Bristol Short Story prize I've often been asked to suggest books on writing short stories. I'd definitely recommend The Short Story: A Guide to Writing Short Stories by Carolyn Lewis." Mike Manson - novelist, publisher and historian
