If you’re an aspiring or experienced writer who needs help getting your creative juices flowing then Story Sprouts is just the book for you.

Written in a short story or essay-type format by various authors in writing workshops, each author writes something they enjoy and then a story inspired by a photograph.
It begins to cover skills and writing exercises, useful for the would-be writer, or writers that want to improve on their skills, or gather inspiration for further writings, helps to bring focus to the writing process.
Each story gives the reader a glimpse of what the author is like, a taste of inspiration, of experience, of those

As the Co-Editor and author of the writing resource narrative surrounding the anthology pieces, I naturally rate my book high. However, I am giving you full disclosure to that fact and hope that you read on for the true meaning of my rating. ;)

I am truly rating this book, a combination of anthology and writing resource, five stars to honor the 18 other authors who contributed to the book. In six hours, they each produced two pieces for publication. The stories they tell are raw and honest, revea

An excellent book for writers and readers. It includes great writing exercises, and stories and poems. Each writing exercise is easily understood and doesn't take up a lot of your time. A fantastic way to work-out your creative muscles and to get your creative juices flowing if you're a new author or if you're just needing some inspiration. The pieces of writing are inspiring and entertaining.

I was lucky enough to win a print copy on a Goodreads giveaway, but it was on my to-be-read list long be

With tips, techniques, and exercises to inspire, I’m glad I read this collection. Not only is there a non-fiction aspect to the book, but there’s the fiction side. The contributors attended a workshop together and the writing pieces that they drafted, revised, and edited that day can be found here. If you’re curious about the writing process and the beginning of an idea or project, this book is for you.
