How to Write Successfully in a Variety of Nonfiction Formats - podcast

What type of writer are you? What are your strengths and weaknesses as a writer, and what topics are you passionate about? These are all questions that writers need to ask themselves to determine where they should focus their writing efforts. Author, educator, and academician Dr. Mark Eckel knows himself well as a writer and has learned to apply his knowledge and strengths to many different nonfiction formats. The key to being successful across a variety of formats, he says, is to understand  that each project can have standards and guidelines that are vastly different from one another. It's important to abide by these and shift your approach when necessary. If your best writing appears only in shorter pieces that's okay, just know that and seek out those specific types of opportunities.
