Heather Hirschi - All books by this author

Easy Way Series - All books in this series

This all-new title discusses, analyzes, and offers exercises in prose forms. It describes uses of written verbal imagery and symbolism and instructs on descriptive and dramatic writing, with sample passages to demonstrate good style. Material is presented in a way that makes these books ideal as self-teaching guides, but Easy Way titles are also preferred by many teachers as supplements to classroom textbooks. General readers seeking out information often turn to Easy Way titles for general background and orientation when starting out in new career-related fields. All Easy Way books contain both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help readers gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color for quick and easy reference.

From the reviews:
“Ultimately all the advice to would-be writers of any age comes down to this command: Write. Hirschi spells it out in the introduction – the point of this book is to get writing. By establishing a writing practice and putting words to paper – the easy part – the writer can develop the required skills. The first few chapters advocate sound techniques, including setting aside time to write every day, journaling, and free writing (continuously writing for a set period of time). …this book provides some solid advice and techniques.”
—Elisabeth Hegerat, VOYA , October 2004
