I wish I had read this a decade ago.

If I had read this ten years ago, I can only imagine the mistakes it would have saved me from making. I don't want to even think of the errors I would have made in the future had I not read it. I have had the honor of working with Bloom and his wisdom, energy and wit is inspiring.

Want to elevate your non-fiction writing? Read Bloom's book

Seasoned editor Lary Bloom knows what any good screenwriter knows -- people love stories. Stories that include honest detail, true emotion, conflict, a point of view, and that show ordinary people's struggles and journeys. In this book, he reminds us that such drama is in everyday lives. He encourages journalists and non-fiction writers to take the time to explore the human drama behind the obvious bullet points of their works-in-progress. The many writing examples used in the book (Bloom has been editor to many writers) shows how doing just this elevated what could have been so-so stories with limited audience appeal to stories that are interesting to many of us. The Writer Within is a delightful read, as Bloom applies these guidelines to his own writing.

Very Insightful

As a young person working in the magazine industry and a person that studied creative writing in college, I found Lary Bloom's book to be a highly readable guide to pursuing creative non-fiction with integrity.
