A special 10th-anniversary edition of Writing Tools , a bestselling guide to writing by America's most influential writing teacher, featuring five bonus tools. Ten years ago, Roy Peter Clark distilled nearly three decades of experience in journalism, writing, and teaching into fifty short essays on different aspects of writing.
In the past decade, Writing Tools has become a classic guidebook for novices and experts alike; it remains one of the best-loved books on writing available. Organized into four sections—Nuts and Bolts, Special Effects, Blueprints for Stories, Useful Habits—Writing Tools is infused with more than 200 examples from journalism and literature.
This new edition includes five brand-new tools; accessible, entertaining, inspiring, and above all useful for every type of writer from high school students to novelists.
