A Lifetime of Words

A Balancing Act

by Jan Seale

Seale’s journey in language has produced here a miscellany of observations, how-to’s, examples, and anecdotes by one who has spent six decades writing and teaching the art of writing. From “Frightening Words” to “Five Versions of a Poem” from “Babysitting the Imagination” to “Porch Light Titles,” this collection offers practical words to the novice writer as well as a touchstone of reflection to the experienced one.
