The Writers Useful Compendium This compendium of phrases and one-liner's is a collection of the highly successful '501 Writers' series of books including '501 Writers Useful Phrases, 501 More Writers Useful Phrases and 501 Writers One-Liner's. Owning the Compendium in paperback or as an EBook is much better value than buying the three books individually and as part of this particular collection, a bonus of 50 mixed phrases and one-liner's have been added. Each section shown in the 'Useful Phrases' index contains 100 entries, except for the bonus 50, and the 'One-Liner's' complete subject section contains a total of 500 entries. This most 'useful', value for money volume of over 185 pages is a 'must have' on the shelf for fiction and non-fiction writers, speakers and speech writers, students at all levels, wordsmiths and journalists and all those just interested in 'words'! Each indexed section, 1 to 21, includes a descriptive heading advising the reader about general content and in the paperback version the index is linked to page numbers. Hopefully, you the reader ... and equally importantly, you the writer, will gain a little extra something from this new edition compendium. This is not a work of academia, does not follow any particular rules of English Language teaching and each section heading should be regarded as a broad but not definitive description of its content. As already evidenced by increasing annual sales of the individual editions combined here, the compendium can make a great and popular reference, not only at the initial manuscript stage of your writing ... if you are a writer at any level, but at the tough edit stage where just one small phrase adjustment can make all the difference to flow, pace, excitement and character definition. So, to writers, readers and students of the English language and English literature everywhere ... Enjoy!

Many Canadian women fiction writers have become justifiably famous. But what about women who have written non-fiction? When Anne Innis Dagg set out on a personal quest to make such non-fiction authors better known, she expected to find just a few dozen. To her delight, she unearthed 473 writers who have produced over 674 books. These women describe not only their country and its inhabitants, but a remarkable variety of other subjects: from the story of transportation to the legacy of Canadian missionary activity around the world. While most of the writers lived in what is now Canada, other authors were British or American travellers who visited Canada throughout the years and reported on what they found here. This compendium has brief biographies of all these women, short descriptions of their books, and a comprehensive index of their books’ subject matters. The Feminine Gaze: A Canadian Compendium of Non-Fiction Women Authors and Their Books, 1836-1945 will be an invaluable research tool for women’s studies and for all who wish to supplement the male gaze on Canada’s past.
