  School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-8-These brief, well-written, and well-organized volumes are jam-packed with solid guidelines. Written in a conversational, reader-friendly tone, the series will engage serious students. Colorful sidebars are interspersed. "Learn from the Masters" provides examples and tips from renowned writers, "Write It Out" offers exercises, and "Writers on Writing" presents quotes from well-known authors on navigating the process. The series as a whole holds out the happy prospect that there's a type of prose suited to almost every aspiring writer but that it just takes practice, an idea, and willingness to revise. VERDICT Teachers will find this series helpful as the foundation of their own lessons, in addition to assigned student reading. © Copyright 2015.
