One of Those Improving Web Sites
While preparing for a workshop, I stumbled upon one of those Web sites that are helpful rather than fun. What Makes a Good Short Story can be found at a site maintained by the Annenberg Foundation and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It discusses the 'elements of fiction'--plot, point of view, character, setting, and theme.
What Makes a Good Short Story includes a short story (which I'll admit I didn't actually read, but it seems like a good idea to have it there) that is referred to in the sections on plot, point of view, etc. So students, parents, teachers, this could be some study help for you.
