The Best

The author's creative genius of breaking down rules on writing into pieces of simple and handy tools is now inspiring me to express my ideas in writing with more confidence. This podcast is the best among my writing professors in my iphone whom I love to listen to while driving or multi-tasking at home and at work.


For my dual enrollment class my teacher wanted to make sure we knew the first nine. She took a class/seminar with Mr. Clark and said he was wonderful. She had us take notes on the first nine and then listen to their podcasts while reviewing, said notes, I basically decided just to get the set in it's entirety... Ok I tried to sound smart but I don't think I'm spelling "entirety" right.

Thank you!

I listened to all fifty of these iTunes U podcasts in one sitting. It was that good! Each episode is concise and without fluff. Overall, I learned a great deal more about the craft of writing than I had known before. It also echoed many of the strategies I’ve learned about in the past but have forgotten. It’s always great to have a refresher. Thanks Roy!
