Product Overview

Do you want to take your fiction writing to the next level?

"Adam Sexton taught me how to read like a writer--and, in a way, how to write like a reader. For without first considering the experience of reading stories--seriously, thoroughly, the way Sexton does--you can't possibly write one worth reading."
--Tara McCarthy, author of Love Will Tear Us Apart
