A must-have book for any new writer and a welcome addition to the library of established writers who are hoping to ‘up their game’.
Have you ever wondered why your short stories are rejected? What is the secret of selling your work? How do you make sure your characters are memorable, your plots realistic and your twists both satisfying and unpredictable?
Della Galton answers these and many more questions using a format that will already be familiar to writers: What? Why? When? How? Where? and Who?
Della Galton has been selling short stories for twenty years. She sells between 90 and 100 short stories a year to markets in the UK and abroad.
She also teaches creative writing and is a popular speaker at writers’ conferences across the UK. Dozens of her students have achieved success in the very competitive field of magazine fiction.
Della is also the author of two published novels, Passing Shadows and Helter Skelter.
Della Galton is a novelist, short story writer, and journalist; she is also the agony aunt for Writers’ Forum and has been writing and getting published for over twenty-five years. When she is not writing she enjoys walking her dogs in the beautiful Dorset countryside where she lives. Her hobby is repairing old cottages, which is lucky as hers is falling down.
