A smart and funny guide to writing fiction, with engaging infographics that bring storytelling techniques to life.

Whether you are daunted by a blinking cursor or frustrated trying to get the people in your head onto the page, writing stories can be intimidating. It takes passion, tenacity, patience, and a knowledge of?and faith in?the often-digressive writing process. A do-it-yourself manual for the apprentice fiction writer, Storyville! demystifies that process; its bold graphics take you inside the writer’s comfortingly chaotic mind and show you how stories are made.

In Storyville!, seasoned guide John Dufresne?whose approach “will anchor the newbie and entertain the veteran” (San Francisco Chronicle)?provides practical insight into the building blocks of fiction, including how to make the reader see your characters, create a suspenseful plot, and revise, revise, revise. Storyville! is a combination handbook and notebook, with original prompts and exercises crafted with Dufresne’s singular dry wit and Evan Wondolowski’s playful and illuminating graphics on every page.

John Dufresne is the author of eleven previous books, including three fiction writing guides. A professor in the MFA program at Florida International University, he lives in Dania Beach.

Evan Wondolowski is the founder of Brews & Clues and a senior art director at Collective Next. He lives in Somerville, Massachusetts.

Dufresne covers the ground from the characteristics of a successful writer to the essential elements of a compelling story, then dives deep into the logistics of plotting and revision….Wondolowski’s illustrations bring context and highlight important takeaways throughout. An excellent addition…laying out the basics for newbies and providing inspiration for seasoned writers.—Booklist

Dufresne dispenses advice on writing fiction with assurance and humor in this entertaining and informative manual…Dufresne’s close attention to myriad details of fiction writing makes this a strong choice for anyone who thinks they have a novel or short stories in them, but don’t know how to begin.—Publishers Weekly
