The Craft of Writing

William Sloane (Author)


“One of the delights of the year is this wise and witty book. . . .For writers of fiction and nonfiction, beginners and pros, [it] will concentrate the attention most wonderfully on the hard-won techniques that go into good writing.” —Walter Berkov, Cleveland Plain Dealer

William Sloane was a brilliant editor, publisher, and teacher for more than forty years. In this book are gathered chapters derived largely from lectures he gave over twenty-five years at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, from correspondence with writers, and from editorial memoranda dealing with the specifics of a writer’s problems.
