Published: A Craft Guide (Paperback)
In writing, one of the best reasons to learn craft is to understand how to manipulate, deconstruct, and break those rules while finding your own voice and style. In Published: A Craft Guide, writers of all experience levels will discover a variety of essays that range from traditional how-to pieces to philosophical musings on writing and craft. Written by past and current editors from Kelp Journal, a multimedia literary journal, these essays explore voice, structure, dialogue, developing characters, point of view, suspense, and more. Each essay gives guidance and thoughts on an individual craft topic with an understanding that every writer has their own style and way of doing things.
Engaging and informative, Published: A Craft Guide delves into each topic with an empathetic touch as the authors have dealt with learning craft during their own publishing journeys. From journalism to fiction to poetry, together, these authors have run the gamut of genre and experience-learning to break the rules while honoring the purpose of each method.
