The Writer's Workbench: 50 Tools You Can Use

This course contains essays on 50 writing tools -- written by a master of the trade -- that are essential to everyone who wants to be a better writer. The course's author, Roy Peter Clark, vice president/senior scholar and reporting, writing & editing faculty at The Poynter Institute, shares with you the list of writing tools he has compiled from reporters and editors, from authors of books on writing, and from teachers and coaches. The essays will teach you everything from the importance of strong verbs to the necessity of learning from criticism. The course is split into four sections: Nuts and bolts, including word choice and sentence structure; blueprints to create architecture for your stories; special effects to refine your writing voice; and useful habits to help you be a more confident writer. Each tool features exercises to help you apply what youve learned.
