In addressing the art of scriptwriting, novel writing, poetry writing, short stories, flash fiction, memoirs, biographical writings, etc. — this book extends beyond the idea of finetuning one’s writing, as well as preparing creative writers in the art of editing, publishing and promoting their art, both in the physical and on the cyberspace. Practical Approaches to Creative Writing also uses simple examples to explain the step-by-step procedures to get these creative ideas to become actual writings.
