The Writing Deck
“Whenever would-be writers ask for advice, I’ve had nothing specific to offer beyond ‘Read a lot’ and ‘Write a lot.’ Now, thank goodness, I can suggest they immediately get a copy of The Writing Deck.”
—Kurt Andersen, Public Radio host and bestselling author
by Emily Campbell and Harry Oulton
