E.B. White and William Strunk Jr. might have told you to "place yourself in the background; do not inject opinion" in your writing—but does that style really work with today's readers?
In this lively and informative book, best-selling author Arthur Plotnik shares ideas and examples that will help you create attention-grabbing, unforgettable writing.
Plotnik covers freshness ("the wallop of the new"), writing for new generations, the "nervy limits," incandescent word choice, clarity, diction and more. Spunk & Bite also includes a brief section with exercises for practice and study.
"Unlike Strunk & White's catalog of abstractions and rhetorical ruler slaps, [Spunk & Bite] is refreshingly concrete," says Poynter Online.
Add some spunk and bite to your writing by heeding the advice in this book.
