Steering the Craft: Exercises and Discussions on Story Writing for the Lone Navigator or the Mutinous Crew
Synopses & Reviews
With her sharp mind and wit, one of the great writers of the 20th century offers an exhilarating workout for prose writers at all stages of development. "Steering the Craft" is only concerned with the "basic elements of narrative: how a story is told, what moves and what clogs it, right down to the level of the elements of language". Examples are drawn from such great and diverse writers as Virginia Woolf, Mark Twain, Jane Austen, and Charles Dickens.
Ursula K. Le Guin generously shares the accumulated wisdom of a lifetime's work.
An exhilarating workout for writers of narrative fiction or nonfiction. With her sharp mind and wit and a delightful sense of playfulness, Le Guin has turned a successful workshop into a self-guided voyage of discovery for a writer working alone or for a writing group or class.
