All students and professors need to write, and many struggle to finish their stalled dissertations, journal articles, book chapters, or grant proposals. Writing is hard work and can be difficult to wedge into a frenetic academic schedule. In this practical, light-hearted, and encouraging book, Paul Silvia explains that writing productively does not require innate skills or special traits but specific tactics and actions. Drawing examples from his own field of psychology, he shows readers how to overcome motivational roadblocks and become prolific without sacrificing evenings, weekends, and vacations. After describing strategies for writing productively, the author gives detailed advice from the trenches on how to write, submit, revise, and resubmit articles, how to improve writing quality, and how to write and publish academic work.

First published in 1931, this volume offers Gertrude Stein's reflections on the art and craft of writing. Although written in her distinctive experimental style, the book is remarkably accessible and easy to read. The modernist author's characteristic humor is borne out by some of the chapter titles, "Saving the Sentence," "Arthur a Grammar," "Regular Regularly in Narrative," and "Finally George a Vocabulary." Stein's experimental style features elements such as disconnectedness, a love of refrain and rhyme, a search for rhythm and balance, a dislike of punctuation (especially the comma), and a repetition of words and phrases. Those who are unfamiliar with her Stein's work or have found it difficult to understand will discover in How to Write an excellent entrée to a unique literary voice and an imaginative approach to language that continues to inspire writers and readers.

""Wordsmiths are craftsmen, who, like goldsmiths and silversmiths, create works of real utility. Goldsmiths and silversmiths use precious metals. Wordsmiths use words. In either case, when it's done well, it's pure artistry."" -Foreword "WORDSMITHING "explains the how and why of writing for public relations from the perspective of a world-class professional and a noted academic. It covers the basic forms of writing for public relations, from the five types of news releases to briefing papers and story pitches, and gives step-by-step instruction on how to write each of them. Equally important, it explains how and when to use each form. All the basics are covered, from handling clearances to creating the most effective distribution channels. "WORDSMITHING "is ideal as a basic text for students in college public relations classes, or as a reference work for professionals already in the field, particularly those in the early years of their careers. The text is reader-friendly, written in a conversational tone that is easy to read, understand, and remember. It also carries a set of interactive CD exercises that lets readers compare their solutions to the exercises with those of the authors. The authors of "WORDSMITHING "understand that one of the most effective ways to learn how to "write is to write a lot, write some more, and then rewrite what you've written." In that spirit, the book contains exercises at the end of each chapter to provide experience with this very necessary practice. And, as the other way to learn to write is by reading a lot, the text also offers some suggested readings.
