William Zinsser’s 5 tips for becoming a better writer | Poynter.

William Zinsser’s 5 tips for becoming a better writer | Poynter. | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

William Zinsser has spent a lifetime teaching people how to become better writers. Now at 88, the author of “On Writing Well” is just as much a student of the craft as he is a teacher.

 

He’s finding ways to remain relevant as a writer in a digital world because, as he says, he “doesn’t want to get stuck in the 20th century.” About a year ago, he decided to set up a personal website and start a weekly blog for the American Scholar. He still teaches at The New School and Columbia University‘s graduate school of journalism and spends much of his free time reading and writing in his New York City apartment.

 

In a recent phone interview, Zinsser talked with me about the craft and shared these five tips for journalists who want to grow as writers.
