Some brief overview of book

A Bird by Bird for the African-American marketA top-notch writers guide filled with practical guidance, essays, and journal exercises for the African-American writer including advice from E.

While the educational system and the publishing world have become progressively more welcoming of African-American authors, there is still little attention to educating, supporting, and sustaining the writing process of African-American authors. Free Within Ourselves is a solid first stepit is the book I wished I had when I started out as a writer. It is meant to be a song of encouragement for African-American artisits and visionaries.

Free Within Ourselves is a step-by-step introduction to fictional technique, exploring story ideas, and charting ones progress, as well as a resource guide for publishing fiction. For the legions of people who have a novel stuck in their word processors, help is finally on the way! Free Within Ourselves is an excellent guide to all the elements necessary to crafting fiction character development, point of view, plot, atmosphere, dialogue, diction, sentence variety, and revision.

Writing techniques are taught using exercises, journaling, story examples, and analyses of famous writing fragments, as well as several complete stories (including those of James Baldwin, Zora Neale Hurston, and Edwidge Dandicat, among others). The book is further enhanced by inspirational advice from successful contemporary black writers (such as Bebe Moore Campbell, Rita Dove, Henry Louis Gates, John Edgar Wideman, and others), a bibliography, and a guide to workshops, journals, magazines, contests, and fellowships supportive of black arts. From the Trade Paperback edition.
