Guy-Write: What Every Guy Writer Needs to Know Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Its no secret that many guys dread writing assignments. But writing doesnt have to be “boring nerd-work.” Writing is about power; its about fun; its about spoofs, humor, sports, blood, farts, superheroes, giant monsters tearing down the city, and serious subjects, too. Ralph Fletcher, a guy writer himself and the author of forty-one books, discusses every tip needed to find the sweet spot in writing: the place where everything except the words stands still. With advice from favorite authors like Jon Scieszka, Jarrett Krosoczka, and Robert Lipsyte, this hands-on book will make a writer out of any guy.

Review:

"With chapter titles like 'Riding the Vomit Comet: Writing About Disgusting Stuff,' this handbook is pointedly geared toward enticing boys to embrace creative writing. Topics include writing humor, sports writing, scary stories, and keeping a notebook. Examples of writing by kids and interviews with such authors as Jon Scieszka, Robert Lipsyte, and Jarrett J. Krosoczka provide real-world models. Fletcher gives readers permission to write about the topics and ideas that interest them, while urging them to strive for depth, meaning, and emotion in their work. Ages 8 — 14.
