It provides both information and inspiration gained from the authors' own writing lives and from observation of their students that will help boost writing confidence.

“Older writers though we are, we do get better at it all the time.”
This book combines personal accounts of the authors' writing experiences as well as writing instruction and information. It contains numerous writing exercises and assignments to get you started and techniques to keep you at it. It also includes sections that cover all types of writing, including poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Marketing resources for writers who wish to be published are included.
