I am super happy to announce this excellent Reader’s Guide for This Is Not a Writing Manual, composed by Lourdes Keochgerien, YARN’s Editor-at-Large (who also does this reader guide thing for a living–so if you need one, find out more about her here). Lourdes did a wonderful job of reading the book and pinpointing the issues that would be important for young readers and writers to discuss. Her questions will help you formulate and articulate your own desires, passions, and tastes, even as you discuss craft issues like themes, revision, and workshopping.
I hope you’ll enjoy using these questions in your book clubs, writing groups, or even just as thought-provokers for your own reflection. And please do share some of your answers here in the Comments, and/or on Facebook and Twitter! I love to hear from you guys.
Thanks for reading. And discussing.
Oh, and here it is for you to download: TINAWM_ReadersGuide
