The Art of Brevity

Grant Faulkner ’87, University of New Mexico Press, February 2023

With elegant prose, deep readings of other writers, and scaffolded writing exercises, The Art of Brevity takes the reader on an exploration of compact storytelling, guiding readers to heighten their awareness of not only what appears on the page but also what doesn’t. Faulkner is the executive director of National Novel Writing Month, co-founder of the literary journal 100 Word Story, and co-founder of the Flash Fiction Collective.
