New Review of A Writer’s Craft

It’s always fun to find a mention of something you’ve done. The other morning, I came across a recent review of my textbook, A Writer’s Craft. As it turns out, a site called Lost In Book included it last month (Dec. 20, 2020) in their round-up of 7 Best Creative Writing Books for Beginners. Thanks to the author Eruslan Yilmaz for including it at #3, right after Janet Burroway’s Writing Fiction and Alice LaPlante’s The Making of a Story. It’s not totally clear whether their numbering is a ranking of just list of the best seven books they found. Mine is the first in the list that is multe-genre, and they note that it begins with chapters that discuss writing practice common to all the genres, then has chapters on individual genres, including digital media and literary citizenship to provide  “a comprehensive understanding of creative writing as a discipline and fostering creativity.”

Many thanks to Eruslan Yilmaz and Lost in Book for featuring A Writer’s Craft.
