On The Other Hand
On The Other Hand

by Brenda Ross

Brenda Ross uses her fictious counterpart Ross Brennan to write both sides of the argument in this collection of essays on the writing experience.

Explored are the choices that have to be made in sexism, editing, marketing, styles & genre, presentation, writing as therapy, title choices, issues of confidentiality and motivation. Many of the 31 articles presented have been previously published in the Canadian Writer's Journal, or the now-defunct Canadian Author and are collected here for your convenience.

Writing from British Columbia, Canada, Brenda continues to use her warmth and charm to bring out both side of the issues for writers.
