Chapters cover such aspects of writing as the novel, short stories, non-fiction, articles, poetry, plays, radio and television scripts - even children's books.
A detailed look at how to prepare a typescript, where and how to submit it and a discussion on the rewards of writing conclude this invaluable book.
Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced writer, you will enjoy Michael Legat's lively anecdotes and down-to-earth approach.
