A useful and real introduction to writing Fiction and Poetry, Mooring Against the Tide closely models the creative writing workshop approach. Organized by genre and then divided by various elements, guest writers share their definitions of Voice, Sound, Point of View, and so forth and then share their own students' work through drafts to allow readers to witness the creative evolution of poems and stories in progress.
This creative writing text will serve as a guide to steer through sometimes rough and unsure waters until the writer is safely moored against the tide.
