From School Library Journal: Grade 8-12-- This friendly, enthusiastic approach to writing offers insight on the creative process through exercises and tips. The emphasis is on practice and learning by doing. Young authors-to-be will find the activities fun as well as enlightening. Because the many examples cited are from the work of students rather than established writers, this handbook speaks directly to the experiences and viewpoints of YAs. It is divided into two main sections, with Policoff focusing on fiction and Skinner on poetry. Their problem-solving, straightforward approach makes this well-conceived guide valuable for both beginning and more advanced writers, and a real boon for teachers. Similar titles include Sylvia Cassedy's In Your Own Words (HarperCollins, 1990) and Susan Tchudi's The Young Writer's Handbook (Scribners, 1984), both of which are directed toward a younger audience and include book reports and letters. Policoff and Skinner's title includes one ``intriguing'' reading list, one ``down to earth list,'' and an appendix of writers' markets. --Susan H. Patron, Los Angeles Public Library
