Writing for life; the craft of writing for everyday living.


Writing for life; the craft of writing for everyday living.

Bessler, John D.

Bottlecap Books


329 pages




Bessler, a two-time Minnesota Book Award finalist and professor at the University of Minnesota Law School, dispels the notion that writing is just for literary figures or professionals writers and reveals the writing process as a thinking process, breaking down and illuminating each step, from pre-writing to publication. The book demystifies the writing process for beginners and experienced writers alike. Chapters are highlighted with blocks of inspirational quotations from literary and historical figures. The book is the debut title of a new Minneapolis-based literary press.
