It's not easy to create an introductory creative writing text that covers both poetry and prose (and even bits of literary nonfiction and drama), but Heather Sellers has done just that. I do have quibbles -- for example, her tone, which doesn't address students like the thoughtful adults that they are. But after plowing through twenty possibilities, this was the text I chose for my Intro to Creative Writing class.
