Writing is not easy. But it can get better. In this primer on
nonfiction writing, Andrew Le Peau offers insights he has learned
as a published author and an editor for over forty years, training,
guiding, and cheering on hundreds of writers. Here are skills that
writers can master--from finding strong openings and closings, to
focusing on an audience, to creating a clear structure, to crafting
a persuasive message. With wide-ranging examples from fiction and
nonfiction, Le Peau also demystifies aspects of art in writing such
as creativity, tone, and metaphor. He considers strategies that can
move writers toward fresher, more vital, and perhaps more beautiful
expressions of the human condition. One aspect of writing that
rarely receives attention is who we are as writers and how writing
itself changes us. Self-doubt, fear of criticism, downsides of
success, questions of authority, and finding our voice are all a
part of the exploration of our spirituality as writers found in
these pages. Discover how the act of writing can affect our life in
God. Whether you're a veteran writer, an occasional practitioner, a
publishing professional, or a student just starting to explore such
skills, Le Peau's wit and wisdom can speed you on your way.
