Essays and Articles

The Writing Show has a podcast called "Writing the Personal Essay" that you might enjoy. The guest is Sheila Bender and she talks about different aspects of writing personal essays.

While you are educating yourself on politics and economics with all the current crises, you might want to take the time to notice how the reporters and pundits structure their articles and essays and how they reference their sources. It will help you with your own writing.

This is right up my alley. :)(I hope that was not a display in bad writing). Then again, I might win a contest from the looks of your previous post lol. By the way, I sent you a pm at Bountiful forum as I don't if there is a place to send pm's at sapience since the upgrades. --Barb

Hi, Barb! Not a display of bad writing at all! I think you'd have to work pretty hard at that Bulwer-Lytton contest--it looks like it'd be hard to beat the bad writing examples that have won before! :D I got your PM and sent you one in return at Bountiful. Happy writing!
