Review

"Professional writing teacher Barbara Baig presents "Spellbinding Sentences: A Writer's Guide to Achieving Excellence & Captivating Readers" lives up to its title as a practical guide improving one's writing through study, practice, and learning from quality models. Chapters cover both nuts and bolts of syntax and advanced strategies of composition, with a wealth of demonstrative examples throughout. "Just like athletes and musicians, writers can break down the complex activity of writing into its component skills; we can practice each skill on its own, then combine it with others." Filled cover to cover with tips, tricks, techniques, and useful advice, Spellbinding Sentences is a "must-have" for aspiring writers everywhere! Also highly recommended is Barbara Baig's previous book, "How to Be a Writer: Building Your Creative Skills Through Practice and Play."" --Library Bookwatch, September 2015

About the Author

Barbara Baig is a writer whose passion is teaching writing. She’s been helping adults and college students learn to write since 1984: at Harvard Divinity School, for over two decades; at Lesley University, The Cambridge Center for Adult Education, and Boston College; and online at www.WhereWritersLearn.com. She now teaches in Lesley University’s MFA Program in Creative Writing, and gives creative writing workshops for The Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, The Cambridge Writers’ Conference, The Cobscook Bay Learning Center, The Bangor Book Festival, and public libraries in eastern Maine and New Brunswick. Though she has an M.A. in Writing and has taught hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students, Barbara is a working writer, not an academic, having written articles, radio scripts (for the Public Radio International program Sound & Spirit), award-winning songs and poems, stories, and a wide variety of public relations materials. Barbara’s first book, How to Be a Writer: Building Your Creative Skills Through Practice and Play (Writer’s Digest, 2010) has sold more than 9,000 copies.
