The Practice of Creative Writing

I wanted to create a textbook that presents students with a friendly, accessible way to approach creativity and writing. Free from lofty literary terms, The Practice of Creative Writing is a practical toolbox for writers at any level.

I’ve always believed that the principles of good writing apply to every genre and I designed the book to teach those five basic principles—imagery, energy, tension, pattern, and insight.
