Book Description

Most creative writing textbooks cover the three popular categories of literature: poetry, nonfiction, and fiction. This textbook is different in two ways, then, because not only does it attempt to cover more genres.

Creative writing is a massive and inexact field. Telling stories by ways of poetry, short stories, novels, and other media can be complex, intimidating, and extremely difficult to take up. However, it also has so much potential to be rewarding and enjoyable for writers and readers alike. In this textbook, we'll go over some of the principles of writing practices and proceed with advice and tips on how to write best. The goal is to provide as much understanding to writing as possible and to look into as many genres as possible.
