The Review of Australian Fiction is a new online journal that publishes, well, Australian fiction...

The opening line of a short story is perhaps the most critical sentence in the entire story. A good opener makes the reader want to know what happens. Since there are only a few thousand words, you need to make sure that you have the reader's undivided attention from the first sentence.

One of my favourite opening sentences: “The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.” - Stephen King, The Gunslinger.

What are your favourite...
