If you write, you know what it’s like. Insight and creativity—the desire to push the boundaries of your writing—strike when you least expect it. And you’re often in no position to act: in the shower, driving the kids to school…in the middle of the night.
The 3 A.M. Epiphany offers more than 200 intriguing writing exercises designed to help you think, write, and revise like never before—without having to wait for creative inspiration. Brian Kiteley, noted author and director of the University of Denver creative writing program, has crafted and refined these exercises through years of teaching experience.

- Shed the anxieties that keep you from reaching your full potential as a writer
- Craft unique ideas by combining personal experience with unrestricted imagination
