In the August issue of Writing Magazine, we analyse four of the most celebrated short stories ever written.

Read the short stories here to avoid having them spoiled by the article, or see how you feel about them without being guided by our assessment.

The stories are:
• Guy de Maupassant, The Necklace, 1884
• Saki, Sredni Vashtar, 1912
• F Scott Fitzgerald, The Diamond as Big as the Ritz, 1922
• Shirley Jackson, The Lottery, 1946

Find out why we think these stories are such a good example for writers, in the August issue of Writing Magazine
