The Art of Writing Drama is an indispensable textbook for wherever writing for the stage is taught, but also serves as a foundational book for any student taking courses in performance media - radio, television and film. Coupling theory with practice, the book opens with a survey of the current methodologies of teaching playwriting and of textual analysis. The theories of Bakhtin, Foucault and Derrida are examined as are the agendas of play reviewers from the national press. In the second section of the book, a wealth of guidance with practical exercises on the skills of writing for the stage is provided. Throughout the text, Wandor draws on her extensive experience as both playwright and teacher of creative writing to provide a guide that is both a scholarly and an immensely practical guide to writing for the theatre.

""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.
