Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer by Roy Peter Clark

A special 10th anniversary edition of Roy Peter Clark's bestselling guide to writing, featuring five bonus tools.

Ten years ago, Roy Peter Clark, America's most influential writing teacher, whittled down almost thirty years of experience in journalism, writing, and teaching into a series of fifty short essays on different aspects of writing. In the past decade, Writing Tools has become a classic guidebook for novices and experts alike and remains one of the best loved books on writing available.

Organized into four sections, "Nuts and Bolts," "Special Effects," "Blueprints for Stories," and "Useful Habits," Writing Tools is infused with more than 200 examples from journalism and literature. This new edition includes five brand new, never-before-shared tools.

Accessible, entertaining, inspiring, and above all, useful for every type of writer, from high school student to novelist, Writing Tools is essential reading.

She used this information in her own writing skills. She loves to write! She is now reading a book called, Smitty's Cave Adventures. She really likes that book too! Good summer reading material.

I am enjoying this book! The information contained within is clear and well written. I am using it to teach my teenage son to write better papers, and it has proven to be very useful and easy to use.
