    I am reading this for my Creative Writing class. I really like it because it's down to earth, upbeat, and has very strong but simple instructions on how to improve my writing. Overall, this is a good book, but you can get the same instruction for less than half the price. It's a textbook, but the exact same lessons have been printed in how-to writing books for years.

    I have taught creative writing on the college level, and this is the only book that I have found can contribute to helping students understand what 'creative writing' is and actually helps them with their own writing. Without elaborating too much on why I think this is a good book, I would say that it combines excellent examples of fiction and poetry that are accessible and at the same time worthy of their genre. There is an absence of lingo and didactic admonishments, and most of all I get the I have taught creative writing on the college level, and this is the only book that I have found can contribute to helping students understand what 'creative writing' is and actually helps them with their own writing.

    Phenomenal! I have read Jeff Knorr's Room Service, which was well written. Tim Schell is my mentor/professor and my favorite at that! Well written by both men, easy to understand plenty of examples; it also contains great poems and short stories; A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings stands out the most. Phenomenal!

    quite a good start for any beginner to creative writing. Yet the structure of some poems should have been edited more carefully. Some of them were not even separated in stanzas. Overall, it presented steps by steps of writing poems and short stories plus provided some good thought-provoking works from amateurish to professional writers.

    What we talk about when we talk about love. Amazing. Dislike a lot of the poems, but that is okay.
