Sooner or later, you're going to need to venture into unfamiliar territory. Maybe a magazine editor asks you for an article on a new technological miracle. Maybe your novel calls for your protagonist to enter a cultural setting far different from yours. Readers demand accuracy.
In How to Write Like an Expert About Anything, Hank Nuwer shows you how to find the facts you need, but more - how to weave those facts into your work. You'll make your writing more interesting and give it the ring of authority - crucial when you're on assignment, critical when you're writing on spec.
With Nuwer's help, you'll discover how to write with the resonant voice of authority; create an atmosphere of authenticity in your work; mine for compelling new ideas, reslant old ideas and spin off current ideas; use new technology and traditional research methods to get the information you need; find and interview any expert on any topic; ensure that your writing is salable by self-critiquing it before submission; make your writing sing; take advantage of other money-making opportunities for using your expertise, including lecturing, teaching and ghostwriting; envision new markets and write proposals that sell your expertise and your ideas.
Read How to Write Like an Expert About Anything. You'll be ready to take on more topics, become a specialist when you need to, write a wider range of articles, add an exciting dimension to your fiction and, most likely, get published more often.
