Author and freelance editor Sarah Cypher has announced a very special giveaway. She’s going to send one lucky winner a collection of six amazing writing books.
One of those titles is her own immensely useful collection of writing terms, “The Editor’s Lexicon.”
All you have to do is pop over to Sarah’s freelance writing site, The Threepenny Editor, and comment on her “Holiday gratitude giveaway” post by midnight on Dec. 15. One lucky winner will be drawn.
The other five books include:
- “The Art of Dramatic Writing,” by Lajos Egri
- “The Art of Fiction,” by John Gardner
- “Bird by Bird,” by Anne Lamott
- “The Elements of Style,” by William Strunk and E. B. White
- “Manuscript Makeover,” by Elizabeth Lyon
While you’re visiting The Threepenny Editor, be sure to check out Sarah’s informative writing articles. As a fiction writer and an experienced freelance manuscript editor, she’s full of thoughtful advice and reflections on the process. There’s also an immense amount of excellent content in her archives, dating back to 2003.
Sarah recently put together some wonderful video tutorials, including one on choosing the right protagonist. (As you may recall, I was struggling with that this time last year!) You can also find Sarah on Twitter and over at her personal writing blog.
