This handbook is the perfect reference for beginning creative writers. It offers abundant illustrations, exercises, and useful techniques in all genres. While emphasizing problem-solving and the mastery of literary conventions, this handbook also takes the apprentice writer on a journey from inspiration to revision. Explores the work of "classic" modern as well as active contemporary writers through examples of effective stories, essays, poems and plays. An extensive look at fundamental creative writing issues includes attitudes, habits, journal-keeping, point of view, language, invention and research, and more. Appropriate for apprentice creative writers.

Review: Creative Writer's Handbook

User Review  - NL Riviezzo - Goodreads

A useful book to those who are new to the writing game and want a single book that encompasses the basics of each avenue of writing. For the more seasoned writer, it's quite a dull read and the sports metaphors that run rampant through out are extremely irritating. Read full review
