This Web site offers help for both the beginning and advanced writer.  Donna Clark Goodrich is a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader. She is the author of 24 books—including the newly released A Step in the Write Direction: The Complete How-to Book for Christian Writers and The Freedom of Letting Go, and over 700 articles, short stories, devotionals, poems, and book reviews. A frequent instructor at Christian writers’ conferences across the United States, she also holds one and two day conferences on her own. Her greatest joy comes from teaching beginning writers and encouraging advanced writers in spreading the gospel through the printed page.
