The No Rules Handbook for Writers

137b667b-2481-4389-8a75-6ba8ce69bb21

Lisa Goldman takes 40 established conventions of creative writing. She explores why these rules persist, how to master them, bend or break them and why, in art as in life, the most important rules you overturn are your own. The book weaves together industry experiences, psychological observations and inspirational tips.

It also contains practical advice from 40 rule-breaking writers including: Hassan Abdulrazzak, Oladipo Agboluaje, Ronan Bennett, Sita Bramachari, Trevor Byrne, Anthony Cartwright, Matt Greenhalgh, Tanika Gupta, Neil Hunter, M.J. Hyland, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti, Dennis Kelly, Bryony Lavery, Chris Paling, Stacy Makishi, Neel Mukherjee, Hattie Naylor, Anthony Neilson, Kim Noble, Tom Palmer, Lucy Prebble, Philip Ridley, Paul Sirett, Edmund White, Roy Williams. The NO RULES Handbook for Writers will be a valuable addition to the bookshelves of anyone curious about the craft, context and process of writing.
