So he began to share his story on what made him a writer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
He then branched out to other writers and had them visit his class and he captures these thoughts in his book The New Journalism: Conversations with America¿s Best Nonfiction Writers and Their Craft.
What is fascinating about this work it ventures into the field of new journalism, where the writer not only writes about the story, but in some cases embeds himself so deep that he becomes a part of the story. What you might deem as a photographer who captures the scenes around him.
The book is broken down into the subheadings of the individual writer and the Q & A format makes for a quick read.
This is perfect book for anyone who wants to peek inside the writer¿s mind on how he is able to craft a story that captures the imagination of the reader. There is really no secret to writing, writers just write and simply put pen to paper and write.
