More Challenges for the Delusional

More Challenges for the Delusional, edited by Ona Gritz and Daniel Simpson, is a craft book based on prompts and exercises for generating writing developed by Peter Murphy in his role as a writing teacher. This long-anticipated follow-up to "Challenges for the Delusional" brings us a wealth of Peter Murphy’s writing prompts, and an anthology of creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. In this edition, you will encounter a diverse range of emerging and accomplished writers including Kim Addonizio, Tony Hoagland, Dorianne Laux, Mimi Schwartz, and Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Dunn. The prompts will ignite your creativity, daring you to take risks and produce work that is sometimes strange but always thought-provoking. This book will offer something new each time you return to it.
