A writing workshop in-a-book, The Creative Writer provides 36 weeks of lessons divided between fiction (organized as weeks 1-18) and poetry (weeks 1-18); within those two sections, units are further divided into literary categories such as plot, sound, setting, dialogue, and description. Addressing both the content and style of imaginative writing, lessons include a succinctly stated purpose, and are followed by a short lesson, literary example, lesson assignment, and challenge exercise.

Easy Writing

Easy Grammar’s Easy Writing program teaches higher level sentence structures on two levels so your student can write more compelling paragraphs and essays. Level 1 is directed to beginners and elementary-age students, and Level 2 is geared to junior high, high school, and adult students. Designed to be used after the student has learned paragraph composition, Easy Writing teaches a step-by-step method for writing specific sentence structures so students learn how to make their paragraphs more interesting. Lessons cover instruction on sentences that contain complex grammatical features such as verbals, present and past participles in phrases, conjunctions, subordinate clauses, relative clauses, semi-colons, appositives, and the correct way to list items in a series, all of which will give your student the skills they need to write at a higher, more sophisticated level.  Reproducible worksheets and answers are included.  474 pages, softcover.
