About the Author

Jack Hart was formerly managing editor and writing coach at the Oregonian. He received a National Teaching Award from the American Society of Newspaper Editors and a University of Wisconsin Distinguished Service Award for his contributions to journalism, has taught on the faculties of six universities, and was named the Ruhl Distinguished Professor at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication. He is the author of A Writer's Coach.


In his latest book, Hart (A Writer's Coach: The Complete Guide to Writing Strategies That Work) focuses on narrative nonfiction, a genre he got to know well during his career as managing editor of the Oregonian. Each chapter covers different aspects of narrative storytelling for burgeoning writers who want to hone their technique and find their voice. Hart provides excerpts and diagrams to help writers execute scene, character, and action. The chapter devoted to structure is particularly helpful. As in Hart's first book, most of the examples are drawn from his experiences collaborating with successful writers. He also discusses distinctions among different forms of narrative and ethical dilemmas faced by creative nonfiction writers. VERDICT This much-needed book fills a niche, particularly as it also covers the editor's perspective. Beginning and advanced writers, particularly journalists, will find useful tips on how to make their writing resonate with readers.-Karen McCoy, Fort Lewis Coll. Lib., Durango, CO (c) Copyright 2011.

"Instructive and essential, reading Storycraft is like finding the secret set of blueprints to the writer's craft. Better still, it is engaging, funny, and wise - wonderful to read and wonderful to learn from." (Susan Orlean) "Despite a career focused on the world of journalism, the author demonstrates much insight into the canon of more 'literary' creative nonfiction by choosing sound examples that are both accessible and widely acclaimed.... This book can function as both a practical introduction to narrative nonfiction and a concise refresher for professionals." (Choice)"
