I just finished using this book with an online writing course. I really enjoyed Casterton's tone, and her exploration of poetry was fun, but it was not exactly the best practical guide for a beginning creative writing course. First of all, as a writer, I delve into all four main genres, for I am a novelist, a playwright, a poet, and I spend a great deal of time writing creative fiction as well. Casterton's examinations of various facets of writing can help an established writer with each elements somewhat, but the chapters are so brief and sometimes so enigmatic that I am unsure what the writer is supposed to gain from the chapter. Perhaps it is just that her style is unlike mine, but some examples of "humor" or "good dialogue" made me wonder. They seemed neither humorous nor good, and I believe my students probably wondered about them as well.

In general, I think the book is fine, but I would not suggest using it for a writing course. The poetry writing assignments (and examples) are not exactly stimulating, and the organization and development of the chapters really do not lend themselves to a classroom environment. I'm not sure what textbook I will use instead, but I doubt I will use this one again.

A helpful book to any student who is studying creative writing or who is writing a book.

She sets a good example of creative writing. Her quotations from other authors and poets are apt and intriguing. Her recommendations and exercises are relevant,challenging and not too onerous.

I found it as interesting as any book I've read.
