Add a dash of Spunk & Bite to your writing

One of DWP’s favorite authors, Arthur Plotnik, sent me a note saying his fantastic book Spunk & Bite: A Writer’s Guide to Bold, Contemporary Style is now available in trade paperback. This “Son of Spunky” edition has “the same content plus an appended study guide, at a better price. And much shinier.” I urge all of you to run to the stores or click your way to Amazon and get this book. (Naturally, I’d appreciate it if you’d click through here.) Read my 2006 interview with Art. He’s always engaging, inspiring, and fun. You’ll find pleny of tidbits from the Great Plotnik!

Part 1: Get a little Spunk & Bite with Arthur Plotnik

Part 2: Arthur Plotnik’s take on the revered Strunk and White

Part 3: Arthur Plotnik on the writing process

Part 4: Arthur Plotnik answers the question Why Write?

Part 5: Arthur Plotnik on living the writer’s life

Part 6: Arthur Plotnik reveals names, chats about MFA programs and the Iowa Workshop, and offers advice

Part 8: Arthur Plotnik answers “Why Blog?”

Part 9: Arthur Plotnik on the future of language and style

Part 10: Arthur Plotnik on the future of e-books

See for yourself why so many are praising Plotnik’s latest work. Check out Art’s website, Spunky’s Blogrr, and the official Arthur Plotnik bio. Still not sure? Read my review of The Elements of Authorship. (Note: Parts 2-6 are from an interview by Briget Ganske, Spring 2006 and posted with her permission.)
