Publisher Comments:

Suitable for both beginning and advanced writers of fiction and nonfiction, The Writer's Portable Mentor: A Guide to Art, Craft, and the Writing Life distills 20 years of teaching and creative thought by the well-published author Priscilla Long. The Writer's Portable Mentor helps writers understand and incorporate the regular practices of virtuoso creators; provides a guide to structuring literary, journalistic, or fictional pieces or entire books; opens the door to the sentence strategies of the masters; provides tools for developing a poet's ear for use in prose; trains writers in the observation skills of visual artists; and guides them toward more effective approaches to getting their work into the world. Says Maya Sonenberg, Director of the Creative Writing Program at University of Washington, I have never seen anything quite like Priscilla Long's book. It presents a true alternative for the advanced writer.

This book opens doors to all aspects of writing--structure, character, word sounds, sentences, paragraphs, and submission. You'll find guidance on daily habits, getting out of a block, and a new view of self-respect and productivity.

It's written with warmth, knowledge, and--of course--lively prose.

This guide is for all writers, new, seasoned, fiction, non-fiction, even poets. Read it and get more deeply engaged in the writing life!
