In these tumultuous times, who doesn't want to transform the world? And who doesn't harbor a secret ambition to write? This book is intended to help people who have a message they're passionate about to convey it clearly through writing. Inspired by a course of the same name that Pipher taught at the University of Nebraska's National Summer Writers' Conference, this book encapsulates her years of experience as a writer and therapist, as well as her extensive knowledge of the craft of writing. It combines practical instruction with inspirational commentary, featuring personal anecdotes, memorable quotations from other writers, practical how-to advice, and stories about writers who have transformed society through their work. In addition to laying out the various steps of the writing process--brainstorming, writing, revising, and publishing--Pipher gives advice about specific forms of advocacy writing: op-ed pieces, letters, essays, speeches, and blogs.--From publisher description.

Well covered book on the multiple aspects of writing well, staying focused and being organized. I am fond of all of Mary Pipher's books.
