Each volume contains directions and instructions for the developing writer, as well as detailed guidance for the mentor or teacher.
T.S. Eliot says, “Before I read The Creative Writer, my poetry was no good. I kept trying to write a collection of poems about Dogs. But while I was reading Boris Fishman’s excellent directions on selecting a topic, my cat Mungojerrie walked by, and inspiration struck.”
