Book Description

Do you need some yawn-proof and sleep-proof writing exercises to get your students to actively participate? Then this book is for you, as it is very complete and is designed to be taught over 16 weeks. It can, of course, be taught in less, by combining some of the lessons into one week. So it would work with an 8-week or 12-week course schedule.

The book includes many creative writing exercises to get the creative juices flowing, and is a more understandable and comprehensible textbook than those of its competitors. Various types of paragraph development, and stories to rewrite are all designed to get the students’ creative juices flowing, and have proved to be quite beneficial to students of various writing levels.

Learn to eliminate writers’ block and to creatively express one’s thoughts through creative writing.

Valerie Hockert has taught creative writing at a college level for many years, and has a PhD in Literary Studies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible April 4, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Silly prompts. Just a waste of money. There were no actual activities, and the only use for this might be to use as attention grabbers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Date and inaccurate August 23, 2012
By Dog Mom
I'm not sure when this books was originally written but it's not recent. A lot of the examples are dated. The author is definitely a non-fiction writer. She has some very good ideas to jump start students into writing but, some of her information is dead wrong! The author gives students a long lists of alternatives to using the attribution, SAID! This is dead wrong. All a FICTION writer ever needs to use as attribution is SAID or ASKED. Read some Hemingway, ma'am! Ask a FICTION publisher! The word SAID disappears. I'm glad I didn't have to pay for this book.
