Poynter Senior Scholar and Vice President

By many accounts, Roy Peter Clark
is America’s writing coach, a teacher devoted to creating a nation of
writers. A Google search on his name
reveals an astonishing web of influence, not just in the United States,
but also around the world. His work has erased many boundaries. A Ph.D.
in medieval literature, he is widely considered one of the most
influential writing teachers in the rough-and-tumble world of newspaper
journalism. With a deep background in traditional media, his work has
illuminated, on the Internet, the discussion of writing. He has gained
fame by teaching writing to children, and he has nurtured Pulitzer
Prize-winning writers such as Thomas French and Diana Sugg.
He is a teacher who writes, and a writer who teaches. That combination
gives his most recent book, “Writing Tools,” a special credibility.
