Product description


"Roy Peter Clark knows more about writing than anybody I know who is not currently dead."―Dave Barry, author of Dave Barry's History of the Millennium (So Far)^"Clark is a joyful, brilliant teacher who unlocks the mysteries of literary flow. This book is one to keep near the keyboard."―Anne Hull, national reporter for the Washington Post^"Roy is the Obi-Wan Kenobi of writing teachers....Like its author, Writing Tools is brilliant, openhearted, and indispensable; it's easily one of the best books ever published about our craft."―Thomas French, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Zoo Story^"Clark is a national treasure that needs to be mined aggressively."―DeWayne Wickham, USA Today^"For all the aspiring writers out there--whether you're writing a novel or a technical report--a respected scholar at Florida's Poynter Institute for Journalists pulls back the curtain on the art."―Teresa K. Weaver, Atlanta Journal-Constitution^"Pull out a favorite novel or short story, and read it with the guidance of...Clark's ideas....Readers will find new worlds in familiar places. And writers will be inspired to pick up their pens."―Boston Globe^"No matter what you write--a blog, a love letter, the next great American novel--Writing Tools offers practical advice that is a pleasure to read."―St. Petersburg Times
