Complements Peace Hill Press's expository series Writing With Skill by providing the imaginative element that many students want. Unlike most "how to write" books, these are designed to be used in a mentor/student relationship, with teaching, guidance, and evaluation tips provided for the mentor or teacher. All exercises build towards the production of finished creative pieces. Sequential, logical, step-by-step instruction. The second level builds on the introductory volume, The Creative Writer: Five Finger Exercises, but can be started directly by older students. Instruction in the five essentials of fiction: plot, characters, dialogue, point of view, and setting. Offers guidance in the essential art of poetry: sound, rhythm, word choice, and poem construction.
