How can teachers develop strong writing skills in their students in classroom and in life? Clarity and precision, empathy, and calls-to- action happen when the writing stimulates a clear response. Capacities in writers take practice and focus and refined skill in a teacher. Fire the Imagination — Write On! is a vehicle for developing those teaching skills that, in turn, develop writing skills in the young and old. The rigor of the lessons makes for engagement and plain old fun in working hard on good writing. Just the ticket for middle and high school youngsters — effective with adults as well!

Mixing autobiography, journalism and fiction, the book considers the consciousness with which we attempt to come to terms with the impossible.
