Here’s the review from Canadian Teacher Magazine.

Canadian teacher and author Heather Wright has a love for writing for children and teenagers and she has written a new resource to help pre-teens to be successful writers. Writing Fiction: A Guide for Pre-Teens is laid out efficiently with a quick reference table of contents. Multiple strategies are listed in addition to basic graphic organizers in which young writers can record their thoughts. The resource is also filled with writing prompts and tips on how to start and end a story. 

Classroom Connections:

Writing can be a daunting task, and teaching children and teenagers to write can be even more intimidating. Writing Fiction offers ample opportunity for instructional use within the classroom, covering a wide range of Language expectations such as generating ideas, classifying and organizing thoughts, and writing from different points of view. The author also discusses the importance of editing and revising words, sentences and paragraphs, as well as creating multiple drafts prior to publishing.
