Writing for Pleasure and Profit Paperback / softback


If you want to be a writer this is the book for you!

Following the success of "An Author's Guide to Publishing", Michael Legat has now produced a truly practical guide to the craft of writing.

Brimming with useful advice and tips, it warns against common pitfalls and teaches you how to adopt a professional attitude towards your work.

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.

This is the most comprehensive and helpful guide to the business of writing that has yet been published.
