Flash Nonfiction: Review by Example

In the online lit mag, Sweet, William Bradley's review of The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Writing Flash Nonfiction takes a unique approach. Since the book is a guide to practicing the craft, after assessing it's editorial content (contributed by Dinty Moore), Bradley offers three rough drafts of writings he completed based on the exercises in the book. Bradley's writing is inspired by three writers of the form who contributed their insight/instruction, sample essays, and exercise prompts: Carol Guess, Bret Lott, and Patrick Madden.
