I have recommended Othello’s writing book to all my high school and college students for the last ten years… It is also applicable to film students and screenwriters. I have written three movies for Mel Brooks and am a two-time Emmy nominated writer/producer, and I believe this is the best educational writing book on the market.

Ms. Bach has accomplished the near impossible in crystallizing the writer’s craft onto a pin-head in this little jewel of a book. I’ve read close to fifty books on writing over the years, and I have yet to find one that so clearly, plainly, and most of all understandably, outlines what the craft consist of.

"How to Write a Great Story" serves as an excellent resource for any teacher who is willing to guide aspiring young minds to think and write. Ms Bach shows keen understanding of tender, budding communicators. "How to Write a Great Story" displays solid examples needed in order to write as an extension of thinking. In my forty-two years as a public school teacher of language arts in grades 7and 8, I have seen very few books such as Ms Bach's. She encourages a teacher to encourage young minds to value something that we hold dear over the rest of God's creation: the power of meaningful and effective communication. Bravo, Othello! Gordon D.
