The third 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.
• Unlike most “how to write” books, these are designed to be used in a mentor/student relationship, with teaching, guidance, and evaluation tips provided for the mentor or teacher.
• All exercises build towards the production of finished creative pieces
• Sequential, logical, step-by-step instruction
• The third level builds on the introductory volume, The Creative Writer: Five Finger Exercises, but can be started directly by older students.
• Instruction in the five essentials of fiction: plot, characters, dialogue, point of view, and setting. Level Three leads students into the construction of more complex plots, evocative settings, and three-dimensional characters
• Guidance in the essential art of poetry: sound, rhythm, word choice, and poem construction. Level Three draws students into even more sophisticated use of words and themes.
