Rebel Yell cover

A cutting-edge, heading-for-the-millennium guide to the craft of fiction writing, Rebel Yell is perfect for individual or classroom use.

Fast-paced and entertaining, Rebel Yell, by Idaho Writer-in-Residence and acclaimed novelist Lance Olsen, begins with a concise but thorough presentation of compositional basics and quickly progresses to more sophisticated concerns, such as navigating the murky waters of the publishing industry, jump-starting your creative muse, and getting the most out of writing workshops. Whether you are sculpting a great hook, deciphering contract rights and wrongs, or coping with the challenges of a writer's life, hip and honest Rebel Yell can guide you to find your own best solutions.

Innovative writing exercises at the end of each chapter encourage writers of all abilities to stretch and flex their creative muscles, while supplementary reading lists guide those who want to push the power of their pens to the next level. Best of all, Rebel Yell features something entirely lacking in many texts – more than 40 interviews with contemporary authors, editors, andpublishers working in diverse media, providing significant insights into the multifaceted worlds of "them that's doin' it." Witty and informative, Rebel Yell is the definitive guide to writing fiction that will grab attention in a crowded literary world.
