The Creative Writer, Level One

$12.15$15.26
 

In this middle-grades creative-writing curriculum, young writers of fiction and poetry learn vital skills such as point of view, characterization, plotting, dialogue, and description. Simple but innovative exercises encourage young writers to strengthen their vocabulary and become aware of the patterns of sentences. 

Unlike most “how to write” books, The Creative Writer is designed to be used in a mentor/student relationship, with teaching, guidance, and evaluation tips provided for the mentor or teacher. 

The Creative Writer, Level One can be used as a complement to our non-fiction writing book, Writing With Skill, or it can be used on its own.

About the Author: BORIS FISHMAN (MFA, New York University) is a writer, editor, and translator. He is the author of the acclaimed novels A Replacement Life and Don’t Let My Baby Do Rodeo, and the short-story collection Wild East: Stories from the Last Frontier, and has written for The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times Magazine, The New Republic, Harper’s, and many other publications.

Additional Information

6 reviews for The Creative Writer, Level One

  1. What age is this book for?

    • This book is suitable for grades 6-9.

  2. Could The Creative Writer Level 1 be completed in a semester or would that be rushing the concepts too much? Are there any additional materials needed for Level 1?

    • It could be done in a semester. That wouldn’t be too fast. And no, you don’t need any other materials.

  3. can the creative writer be used with the grammar curriculum and easy writer book 2,3 ?

    • Yes…The Creative Writer would be a good once-a-week “fun” elective for a student who was already using those books.

  4. If my student has gone through the Writing with Skill, levels 1-3 already, where would she jump into the Creative Writer series?

    • That student could start at any level of the Creative Writer. We would suggest checking out the samples and choosing one from there. https://welltrainedmind.com/samples/

  5. Is there something in a similar vein for Elementary Ages? We’ve completed WWE y 1-3 but I realized I wasn’t helping my child build her writing skills. I have other questions about some bumps I have experienced using these for the last three years but I figured I would start there.

    • For creative writing, this is all that we have. This series (especially Level One) could be used with students as young as fifth grade. For your other questions about bumps you have experienced along the way, please send them along. The folks at [email protected] have a wealth of information and experience.

  6. Is there a teacher manual that goes along with this? How do we evaluate students’ work?

    • There is not a separate manual for the teacher. There are “Mentor Materials” (you’ll find them at the end of the Fiction section and at the end of the Poetry section) that give tips for teaching and evaluating each week’s exercises.
