Description

Roy Peter Clark has been teaching writing at the Poynter Institute since 1977 and regularly offers up some of the best writing advice I see. Today, we talked about 



  • Writing differently during the pandemic

  • Living up to your duty as a writer to achieve civic clarity

  • Creating his new book, "Murder Your Darlings"

  • Learning that one of his best writing tips (which he shares) is as old as Roman times

  • Being a putter-inner instead of a taker-outter
