Editorial Reviews

Review

Aspiring writers do not need another pandering, pat-on-the-back, feel-good writer's manual. They don't need any more cheap promises for zero-to-bestseller surefire success. What they need is something with no-nonsense substance, and Douglas Wilson offers it in Wordsmithy. Quick, punchy, and immensely wise, Wordsmithy is a cut-to-the-chase collection of important and sometimes unexpected tips for the writing life. ---Brett McCracken, author, Hipster Christianity: When Church & Cool Collide

This book just nails what it takes to be a writer. And it isn't just a matter of being a sensitive creative soul. A writer needs to live in the actual world, to "read the kind of stuff you wish you could write," and to love language. This book embodies what it preaches in its practicality, in how funny and fun to read it is, and in the way its words dance through the mind. ---Gene Edward Veith, Provost and Professor of Literature, Patrick Henry College

Wordsmithy is funny, memorable, and full of thought-provoking advice. ---Credo Magazine, August 2012 --This text refers to the paperback edition.
