Product Details


“A highly readable book that entertains as it instructs… Even veteran writers will find a new perspective on the whole writing venture… Almost anyone will find the book a delightful, useful tool for writing well.”- Quill and Scroll

“Steven Frank is the English teacher you wish you’d had in high school. That’s because he knows that education and humor make terrific team teachers. If thou wishest to become a better—and more joyful—writer, thou shalt follow The Pen Commandments.”
—Richard Lederer, author of A Man of My Words

“Frank’s approach is fresh and irreverent… If writers absorb Frank’s commandments, they’ll reap a worthwhile reward: good writing.”- The Advocate

“Helpful… To be read as you write…Frank is generous; he doesn’t want anyone to be frightened away from the sport because the don’t know the rules.”- Los Angeles Times
