Reminder to teachers, students, others:
For educational purposes, Cecilia Brainard decided to make her book, Fundamentals of Creative Writing available for free in Wattpad.
“Cecilia Manguerra Brainard’s Fundamentals of Creative Writing is a marvelous textbook that combines useful technical advice on craft with beautiful practical examples in her own stories. Brainard’s treatments of writerly voice and left brain/right brain theory as it connects to writing are among the best available in today’s writing textbooks. Her story examples cover a variety of story types, techniques, points of view, and historical as well as contemporary topics and themes. This book will indeed help writing students write strong stories and improve their craft. Brava, Ms. Brainard.” (Vince Gotera, Writer, Editor of North American Review, Professor of Creative Writing, University Northern Iowa)
