Writing tips and activities to help reades become writers of biographies.
In this accessible series entry, Rosinsky adroitly leads readers through the challenging process of researching and writing a biography. Chapters include helpful suggestions, excerpts from published works, and writing exercises. Full-color photos, charts, and graphics break up the text, and a clear time line at the bottom of each page shows readers/would-be writers where they are in the process. The presentation is realistic, addressing such vital topics as character development, writer's block, and "Scintillating Speech." The author also makes useful suggestions about how to get published. The instructive glossary and the well-chosen list of recommended biographies are real pluses.
