The One-Hour MFA (Table of Contents)


Michael Kimball’s brief and excellent book on the craft of writing fiction, The One-Hour MFA (Publishing Genius, 2015), is available in print and ebook, but Michael also allowed us to make it available for free here at Real Pants. We put out two chapters every week for 8 weeks, and finished the whole book yesterday. Here’s a table of contents (links will open in a new window):

  1. Openings and Process
  2. Word Counts, and Story & Plot
  3. Language & Sentences, and Acoustics
  4. Syntax & Diction and Narration & Voice
  5. Character and Dialogue
  6. Description & Details and Figurative Language
  7. Endings & Revising
  8. Punctuation & Last Note
