Divided into four parts-Listening to the Page, Learning by Sharing, Exploring Form, and Sitting to Write-the book includes both previously published and unpublished pieces that present a record of personal explorations into the process of writing and teaching writing. Included in the unpublished pieces are excerpts from handouts written for students, case histories of the author's own writing, and a running commentary that puts the reading in context. Inspirational and honest, Expecting the Unexpected is a celebration of surprise; it is one writer/teacher's account of how to expect the unexpected and how, even, to encourage, nurture, and make use of it

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Crafting a Life in Essay, Story, Poem, Donald Murray demonstrates the craft that has been his discipline and joy for more than half a century. He describes how the writing act has allowed him to live his life twice--once in experience and once again as the evolving draft illuminates the texture and meaning of that experience. Murray takes the reader into his private writer's workshop and not only reveals the basic techniques of writing essays, stories, and poems, but also discusses the attitudes--emotional and mental--that determine the effectiveness of his craft. Beginning and experienced writers will work beside this Pulitzer Prize winning craftsperson, catching ideas from life, developing them in language, shaping them into publishable forms. In the first section of the book, Murray talks about attitudes and skills that encourage and initiate writing. Then he deals with specific techniques of writing the personal essay, fiction, and poetry. In the final section, he explains the skills of revision and editing as well as ways to develop a writing community and submit work for publication. Crafting a Life in Essay, Story, Poem is both a celebration of the writing process and a practical manual on how to explore the world with the written line. It is a book that every teacher and every student of writing will want to own. -- Book Description
