The Craft of Professional Writing is the most complete book ever written about the real-life work of being a writer. It covers topics ranging from business writing (advertising, PR) to commercial work (news reporting, feature writing, blogging, non-fiction books) to creative writing (screenplays and novels), as well as advice on pitching, rejection and leading a writer's life. The narrative is filled with anecdotes and illuminating stories, as well as tricks of the trade in each form of writing.
