by Flora Klickmann
Publisher: G. P. Putnam's sons 1920
Number of pages: 324
A book for would-be authors. No one can teach authors how or what to write; but sometimes it is possible to help the beginners to an understanding of what it is better not to write. For the rest I hope the book explains itself.

by Nathaniel C. Fowler - Sulley and Kleinteich
The writing of stories of every class and of any length, and of every kind of literature, is a distinct art or profession, may be considered as a trade, and cannot be accurately weighed unless subject to both ethical and commercial consideration.
by Joseph Devlin - The Christian Herald
This book should help ordinary people to express themselves in ordinary language, in a proper manner. Some broad rules are laid down, the observance of which will enable the reader to keep within the pale of propriety in oral and written language.
by Richard Mitchell - Little, Brown
Author takes examples of bad writing and rips them to shreds. These mistakes are revelations about the mind that wrote them. The examples of bad writing that come from educators are given special attention. Mitchell's first book is also his best.
