I'm a 6th grade Language Arts teacher, but never had formal training in grammar or creative writing. In our curriculum, writing is very formulaic and methodical. The Byline Bible gave me some great ideas for helping my students improve the quality and interest of their writing.
This isn't really a how-to manual. Instead, it's like having a personal tutor walk you through the steps by giving examples and alternative suggestions. I love the parts that showed how to perk up outdated sentences!
The Byline Bible would be a great resource for writers who want to improve their content. I'll use it in my lesson planning as well as on my blog posts. Those who are considered professional writers could benefit from these ideas, too!
