Book Review #1170
The Virginia Woolf Writers Workshop: Seven Lessons to Inspire Great Writing by Danell Jones
Rating: two stars (out of four)
We used this book for one of my writing classes. I liked the writing exercises because they offered interesting perspectives and approaches, but the general feel of the book didn't appeal to me. Maybe it's because I don't think Virginia Woolf is the absolutely BEST writer in the world. So that's why the author's voice seemed presumptuous and slightly annoying. I felt that Virginia Woolf was elevated too much. But for fans of Woolf I can see how this might be a good writing companion.
