Because It Works!

How-To Articles from New England Writer's Network


“Do you like my story?” “Did I write my personal essay right?” “What do you think of my poem?” “Why is my work being rejected?” If you’re asking these questions and not getting helpful, constructive answers, try asking the only question that Glenda Baker and the editors of New England Writers’ Network ask: does it work? Because It Works! is a compilation of over 40 articles and exercises on the elements of writing fiction, personal essays, and poetry. Originally published in NEWN magazine, these articles are designed to help you determine if your writing works—and if it doesn’t, how you can make it work. Because it Works! shows you: 8 ways to characterize When not to use description Point of view—simplified! What to show; what to tell The 10 dialogue commandments How and where to begin How to prop up the sagging middle The 8 awful endings You’ll also learn how to critique and be critiqued, the writing process will be demystified, and you’ll understand that writer’s block is not a writing problem! “I’ve just read your article on point of view. WOW. Clear, concise, to the point, and in no way confusing . . . this is the best and easiest explanation I’ve seen.” —Arline Chase, author and instructor for Writer’s Digest School.
