Synopsis

Views from the Loft A Portable Writer's Workshop by Daniel Slager

Teachers, exercises, mentors, critiques, humor, and inspiration: these form the fuel all writers need when they get down to work every day. For decades the Loft Literary Center has provided this fuel to an enormous community of writers. Views from the Loft brings together the collected wisdom of that community ? its authors, students, and editors ? giving anyone the tools and inspiration necessary to thrive in the writing life. A who's who of writers on writing ranging from the National Book Award? winning poet Mark Doty to Newbery medal? winning children's author Kate DiCamillo, and touching on issues as delicate as the representation of family in memoir and as hilarious as a ? sad-epiphany poem mad lib for frustrated poets, this book is an essential collection of crucial tips and challenging questions for everyone who puts pen to page. The essays and interviews in this book include superstar writers like Rick Bass, Michael Cunningham, Grace Paley, Susan Power, Susan Straight, Marilyn Hacker, and many, many more.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Emma Caddick

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
