Author(s): Carmel Bird
This book about writing and the imagination is essential reading for any writer, emerging or experienced. Re-released with new material and updated advice for the 21st writer. 'I first read Dear Writer as a nervy, secretive scribbler-in-journals 20 years ago. Reading this revised version I'm struck again by its practical generosity on technical matters - but am also inspired by the deeper, more complex conversations I think I missed in those early readings: about courage, about the urgency and mystery and self-discovery of the writing process. Dear Writer Revisited may masquerade - convincingly - as a book for beginners, but its lessons are mature and wise.' -Charlotte Wood, The Writer's Room Interviews
