Writers need good editors, someone they trust to make the story better. When I wrote my latest book, Recipe For Joy, I had a terrific editor in Vinita Hampton Wright at Loyola Press. Any change that was made to the manuscript, from the structure of a sentence to the expansion or consolidation of an entire section, I ultimately believed in.
Now anyone looking to write a spiritual story can have Wright’s insights with her new book, The Art of Spiritual Writing. In it, she stresses the importance of crafting readable prose, making a story accessible to many readers, not just family and friends, and being authentic. She writes about finding your voice and how to let God come through, too.
This book is a practical manual, with steps that carry a writer through the whole process. And it’s written by someone who has worked in publishing for many years as both a writer and an editor.
Those who are ready to take off on a spiritual writing project should take Wright along as their copilot.
