We will be using Roy Peter Clark's Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies
for Every Writer published by Little, Brown and Company in 2006. Come to the
first meeting on September 13th having studied the first tool "Nuts and
Bolts" and having done the "Workshop" (exercises) for that tool. Each month
we will cover a tool or two. To see what tool we are covering at a
particular meeting look at the assignments section of the agenda from the
previous meeting on this web page, which will be put up on this web page.
