A DASH OF STYLE is filled with anecdotes, examples from literature, before and after examples, quotations, and exercises.  The fact that it is short (190 pages), interactive, and highly readable makes it an obvious choice for teachers to use, at the high school, college or graduate school level, or in a creative writing workshop or MFA program.  For creative writing teachers who are looking to add variety to their curriculum, it is the perfect choice, as there is nothing else like it on the market.
