50 Writing Tools

 

 

 

Written by a journalist, the list of 50 writing tools makes for powerful reading. Tool one sounds simple enough: "Begin sentences with subjects and verbs, letting subordinate elements branch off to the right." But Roy Peter Clark doesn't leave it at that. He gives an example from the world of journalism and from John Steinbeck's classic, Cannery Row.

The best part is the Workshop provided at the end of each tool. Here, you'll find a few ideas for practicing the new skill described.

If you study one of the tools each week, your writing will surely improve!
