Product description

Review

"In Writing Beyond The Self, veteran author, Jenean McBrearty provides an elegant guide writers can employ to pen compelling creative nonfiction. Clearly and concisely written, McBrearty's 9 lessons reveal the critical techniques the writer can employ to transform a mundane text about personal experiences, real people, or events, into an engaging experience for the reader. It is a perfect primer for the novice and seasoned writer alike." Paul Stansbury, author, publisher, and contributor at The Advocate-Messenger

"Jenean McBrearty has packed more useful information between the covers of this little book than I've seen in textbooks on the subject of writing nonfiction. She's written it for new writers of creative nonfiction, but even old-hand authors can benefit from her down to earth lessons. Her examples are readable and the instruction understandable. Writing Beyond the Self is a must-read for all writers who want to learn about the genre and get their stuff published." Misty Wood, LPN and beginning writer

"For writers who have not had the luxury of attending MFA writing programs, McBrearty has laid out a quick and to-the-point list of do's and don'ts for beginners or writers who want to learn about a different genre. Through one sentence lessons, explanation of those lessons, and short-story examples, McBrearty answers the questions, 'What is creative nonfiction anyway?' and 'How do I write it?' A little book filled with immeasurable information, Writing Beyond the Self is a must-have for anyone looking to turn their personal stories into marketable works that publishers will want to print." Pepper Jones, editor of Neo-legends to Last A Deathtime Anthology
