The Practice of Creative Writing: A Guide for Students (Paperback)
by Heather Sellers (Author)

Editorial Reviews
"[This text] is engaging, idiosyncratic, smartly-written, amusing, informative and dead-on."

— John Walser, Marian College of Fond du Lac

"The tone and energy are fantastic, as is the continual implication that creative writing and student writing are important and vital. I also like the implication that students CAN do this. It’s difficult and they must practice — but they can do it if they work hard . . . ."

—Barbara Griest Devora, Northwest Vista College

Product Description

The Practice of Creative Writing is designed for all students in the introductory course, including those who may never take another writing class. Its message is, simply put: you can do this, and it’s worthwhile to try. Heather Sellers, who writes in multiple genres herself, has developed an approach that focuses on the habits and strategies that produce good writing in any genre. These habits and strategies make it possible for students to focus, to generate lots of writing, and to get to the good stuff — the powerful imagery and the stories they really want to tell. She makes creative writing fun by providing opportunities to be playful and to experiment at the same time she teaches students the importance of discipline and craft.
