THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE

A DISCUSSION IN WRITING NONFICTION

With Steven Darian

Whether you’re interested in doing a memoir or a travel book, a popular history of hockey or the secrets of Polynesian cooking––this one hour workshop will introduce techniques you need… to shoot for a tradebook on the New York Times bestseller list, or an article on spec for The New Yorker.

 

What Tools is About

Whether you’re doing a scholarly work or a textbook, shooting for a trade book on the New York Times bestseller list or an article in The Atlantic–it’s the same challenge: writing well. Really well. No matter what you have to say, good writing helps you get there.

Tools of the Trade focuses on the four keys to writing good nonfiction: heightening the reader’s interest; increasing their understanding & remembering. And developing the relationship––while avoiding the no-no’s The techniques in the book are designed to help you accomplish these things.
