Publisher Description

Twentieth Anniversary Edition with Contributions from Joe Hill and Owen King

ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE’S TOP 100 NONFICTION BOOKS OF ALL TIME

Immensely helpful and illuminating to any aspiring writer, this special edition of Stephen King’s critically lauded, million-copy bestseller shares the experiences, habits, and convictions that have shaped him and his work.

“Long live the King” hailed Entertainment Weekly upon publication of Stephen King’s On Writing. Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer’s craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have. King’s advice is grounded in his vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999—and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery. Brilliantly structured, friendly and inspiring, On Writing will empower and entertain everyone who reads it—fans, writers, and anyone who loves a great story well told.

Customer Reviews

Bostonmc ,

Great Book

Excellent book for any author looking to get started writing... and stay writing.

Big Daddy Mas ,

Good advice

At first I was like, is this a memoir or an instruction, a little of both and very well done!

Sowatee ,

Boring

Starts with an autobiography with little tidbits. Towards the middle of the book is where “real” writing instruction happens, which is very generous to begin with. Best advice he’s given is to simply read a lot and write a lot.
