Field Notes for Writers, Episode 1: Nouns and Verbs, Adjectives and Adverbs


[Editor’s note: Jonathan Rogers not only writes great books, tells humorous anecdotes, and wears bowties and seersucker suits, he also teaches literature at New College Franklin, teaches online writing classes (which you can join here), and now he’s even teaching the entire internet how to improve its writing in his new series of youtube videos. Enjoy!]

Jonathan Rogers is the author of The Terrible Speed of Mercy, one of the finest biographies of Flannery O’Connor we've ever read. His other books include the Wilderking Trilogy–The Bark of the Bog Owl, The Secret of the Swamp King, and The Way of the Wilderking–as well as The World According to Narnia and a biography of Saint Patrick. He has spent most of his adult life in Nashville, Tennessee, where he and his wife Lou Alice are raising a houseful of robustious children.

    I was just telling a friend last night my desperate need for a class that teaches this type of information. And I see on Jonathan’s website there’s a “grammar for writers” class as well. So thankful.
