A conversationally written guide shows how to write more persuasively, effectively, and confidently

By Sam Leith. Witty and irreverent, but also incisive and to-the-point, this conversationally written guide not only delves into the nuts and bolts of the writing process, but ultimately shows readers how to write more persuasively, effectively, and confidently. Written by a literary editor/news columnist, the volume provides numerous examples from noted writers as it explains how to cultivate "audience awareness," demonstrates how to best use-and not to use-the different parts of grammar, analyzes ways editors can perform "sentence surgery" on problematic passages, identifies perils and pitfalls of the writing process, discusses ways to approach various types of writing (e.g., long-form structure, letters, forms of address), and more. Note: some salty language. Grades 9 and up. Index. The Experiment. 263 pages. ©2018.
