    One thought on “Writing from Personal Experience

    1. Linda

      I took a writing workshop with this author on this subject matter, and ironically, it was during the most difficult period of my life (unforeseen and unexpected loss of a loved one). I didn't plan it this way (I had signed up for the class long before the tragedy), but I decided to show up anyway -- it was absolutely an incredible experience for me.

      Read because I'm teaching a journalism/ creative non-fiction class to teens.

      Another great reference book for first-time authors. It's full of tips for creative inspiration but mainly focusses on developing the art, craft and habits of writers. The author is an experience workshop giver and this book is a compliation of all she's learnt from dealing with students of the craft. I found some useful tips on character development.

    4. Jaclyn

      Great advice and exercises for beginning writers or those just diving into personal essays. Even though I'm not just starting out, I still found a lot of good ideas and inspiration. A worthwhile read for anyone looking to get serious about personal essays.

    5. Faith

      I found this book very helpful especially to a beginner writer. This book provides exercises and assignments and is very helpful to a writer's career.
