A very useful reference book

Wordsmithery: The Writer's Craft and Practice - Jayne Steel

A slim volume packed with accessible advice from lecturers in Creative Writing. It covers novel writing, short stories and poetry. I especially enjoyed the articles about point of view, by Linda Anderson, and settings "Writing the Landscape", by Lee Martin. Whether you are studying Creative Writing at university or a writer wanting to improve their craft, I think this is a clear, concise and comprehensive reference book that you will return to again and again.
