The second volume of the four-book series that guides students into the creation of sophisticated short fiction and mature poetry.

  • Complements Peace Hill Press’s expository series Writing With Skill by providing the imaginative element that many students want.

  • 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.
