The Virginia Woolf Writers’ Workshop: Seven Lessons to Inspire Great Writing.

In this brilliantly imagined book, author Danell Jones mines the diaries, essays, correspondence, and fiction of a literary legend to create an unforgettable master class in the art of writing. Using Virginia Woolf’s own words, this inspiring, instructive, and entertaining guide will delight fans, students, and teachers alike—and at last give Woolf a classroom of her own. Imagine what it might be like if Virginia Woolf were teaching a writers’ workshop. What would she say? What elements of her own experience would writers today find valuable? Now one need only to look within these pages to delight in her magic. For here, perched at the podium of a classroom, Woolf is ready to discuss the advice for writers that she scattered throughout her work. From nurturing ideas and dealing with self-doubt to creating a completed work and getting published, here is a wellspring of practical advice, invaluable insights on the creative life, and dozens of “writing sparks”— exercises for writers of all levels— inspired by Woolf’s most well-known works. Take your seat in class as she shares her wisdom, wit, and expertise on a range of matters, including: •The value of experimentation•How to use a journal for inspiration•The importance of reading, walking, and practicing•Methods for learning from great writersAlso provided are recommendations for further reading as well as the original sources of all of Woolf’s quotes For deeper exploration. Let Woolf’s utterly unique vision guide you to your own distinct voice at the same time that you deepen your appreciation and knowledge of her as a revolutionary writer and thinker.
  • The book's flap copy reads in part: "Imagine what it might be like if Virginia Woolf were teaching a writer's workshop. What would she say? What elements of her own experience would writers today find valuable?"
    Could not imagine it until I started into the read and utilized writing exercises for my writer's group. I didn't tell them from where the exercise came. They said keep bringing us more like I was the inventive genius who created the sparks.
    A great tome for writers, the chapters are organized quite differently from other volumes of instruction, entitled simply: Practicing; Working; Creating; Walking; Reading; Publishing; Doubting; Suggested Further Reading; and Sparks {exercises} broken out by Fiction; Nonfiction; and, Poetry.
    The lessons are indeed inspiring and to one of them I shall now return.

  • A very well written book especially helpful to novice writers. Taken from the position of a writing class headed by Virginia Woolf. Well researched, clearly written with very helpful exercises. A book to be read, then reexamined in order to get the full benefit. Highly recommended..

  • If you enjoy writing or are learning how to write this book is a great tool. I and my teenage daughter explored this book together; it takes away the fears/blocks and gives you the convenience to develop your own writing style. All High School English creative writing classes should include some of this book in their lesson plans. Virginia Woolf is a unique writer and person and that comes through in the book as well. This book is for all levels of writing; be unique, be disciplined and the book will give you all the encouragement, and inspiration you need. At the very least it will teach you how not to bore people with your writing any more! My daughter has started writing her first novel at age 13.

  • As a layman seeking to understand the magic of Virginia Woolf, I found that her approach to creativity opened a new vista to my eyes. Reading Jones' treatment to the complex Woolf was like taking a course in painting principles and becoming to appreciate the combination and mixture of colors. Upon having gained that new appreciation, one could go out in the nature about them and perhaps see the colorful beauty of the world for the first time. Jones' text opens the eyes of the reader to the complexity of an author's task.

    Through this work I have gained a new found admiration for the laborous task that faces a serious author. Obviously Jones has employed the work ethic of Woolf. J. G. Pastrick

  • A very helpful book for beginning writers with all the right questions asked. The format is different-with Virginia Woolf 'teaching a class' in modern times.

    I found the exercises helpful too.
