The Creative Writer, Level Three builds on the foundation laid in earlier volumes. Learn to use the fiction toolbox of plot, character, setting, point of view, and dialogue with even more assurance and skill; study the advanced application of meter, rhyme, line breaks, subject, and word choice in poetry. Each volume contains directions and instructions for the developing writer, as well as detailed guidance for the mentor or teacher. Exercises scaffold on each other, building towards the completion of full creative pieces in both fiction and poetry.

Ernest Hemingway says, “Before I read The Creative Writer, I knew nothing about the craft. I was going to give A Farewell to Arms a happy ending. But then Boris Fishman taught me everything I needed to know about writing, editing, revising, bullfighting, marlin fishing, and the way that northern-Italian pasta tastes when you eat it cold, in the autumn morning, as you wait for the Austrian artillery to begin firing at your trench.”

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.
