Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Leone (Colgate U.) has edited these essays from the Colgate Writers' Conference on the craft of writing fiction and poetry which range from the practical (how to find a literary agent) to the artistic (how to translate thoughts and emotions into written words). Writers such as Justin Cronin, Kelly Cherry, Robin Behn and Frederick Busch discuss such topics as how to develop interesting protagonists, the connection between music and prose and how to be creative while writing non- fiction. Written to inspire budding authors, this book also explores the basic skills needed to create realistic dialogue. Distributed by Syracuse University Press.
