Our friend Gareth Branwyn has just announced the publication of his new 20-page booklet, "Gareth's Tips on Sucks-Less Writing." This is loaded with excellent advice for writers. Gareth became a senior editor of bOING bOING around 1990 or so, and I learned a great deal about writing and editing from him. Gareth is a terrific writer and a terrific teacher.
Hot off the presses! It’s a print version of "Gareth's Tips on Sucks-Less Writing." 20-page booklet, color cover on cover stock. $6 postpaid (US and CND), $9 elsewhere. Inscribed by me. Paypal or Amazon Payments to email@example.com.
First released on the eve of the blogging revolution in the late 90s, “Gareth’s Tips on Sucks-Less Writing," was widely disseminated as a wise, useful, and entertaining good-writing tips sheet for newbie bloggers and writing pros alike. It was adopted by several creative writing classes in colleges and is still being taught in at least one second year writing class today. Excerpted here as part of Gareth Branwyn’s forthcoming collection, Borg Like Me (& Other Tales of Art, Eros, and Embedded Systems), “Gar’s Tips…” has been refreshed and expanded, with all new tips, new resources, and a new introduction.

Danny Hellman did some terrific illustrations for the print edition of bOING bOING. I just saw this illo he did for Gareth Branwyn’s upcoming book, Borg Like Me, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter (he’s got some awesome stretch goal premiums!).
Gareth Branwyn, my old friend and the senior editor of the bOING bOING zine, has a Kickstarter going for a book of his collected writings, called Borg Like Me. One of the things I love about Gareth is that he has many interests, and is able to write about them in a way that makes […]
