Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer
Roy Peter Clark, 2008, Little Brown & Company

Writing Tools has become a classic guidebook for novices and experts alike and remains one of the best loved books on writing available. Organized into four sections, 'Nuts and Bolts,' 'Special Effects,' 'Blueprints for Stories,' and 'Useful Habits,' Writing Tools is infused with more than 200 examples from journalism and literature. Accessible, entertaining, inspiring, and above all, useful for every type of writer, from high school student to novelist.


The Licentiate in Literary Subversion & Dissidence is a long-term project which aims to build a knowledge and understanding of Literature and advanced skills in creative writing through a continuous and accumulative process of reading Literature and literary theory whilst writing imaginatively and otherwise about the same.

Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning
Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, Mark A. McDaniel, 2014, Belknap Press

Many common study habits and practice routines turn out to be counterproductive. Underlining and highlighting, rereading, cramming, and single-minded repetition of new skills create the illusion of mastery, but gains fade quickly. More complex and durable learning come from self-testing, introducing certain difficulties in practice, waiting to re-study new material until a little forgetting has set in, and interleaving the practice of one skill or topic with another. Speaking most urgently to students, teachers, trainers, and athletes, Make It Stick will appeal to all those interested in the challenge of lifelong learning.

Crouched below the Pennine hills, the Grand Imperial Municipality of Clagsborough straddles the confluence of the rivers Claggy and Hengment on the throat of the Rowther Estuary, replete with its shoddy mills, whalebacks, dirigibles, velocipedes and ha'penny steam tram network. Three other conurbations brush the outskirts of its Pleistocene triskelion ghyll: Hopplesdale to the west; the cranetown of Lower Wharram to the north west; with the county capital Shiplingham-on-Dearne to the south.
