A Mini for Wannabe Writers

Pretending to be A Writer

This is dedicated to everyone who attended a class or workshop I presented on writing and was nice enough to say it made a difference to their effort. That made a big difference for me and it still does.

The idea is to get beyond style issues and probe why the story is worth telling and to whom.

 I do it through three stories. How else? The book is only $3.50 plus $2 for shipping. Send a check to: Zelda Wilde Publishing, 315 Water St, Cambridge WI 53523 or order it by credit card by clicking on the box below.

All New: The $3.50 Mini, perfect to read or give as a gift.

Escape Cover

We are going through a transition from print to cell phones and iPads. My idea is to create short books that will be a transition. They cost only $3.50 each, but are handy and can be quickly enjoyed. Perfect for your reading or as gifts.

The Art of Dancing in the Rain

Dance Cover-1

“You already have all the writing tools you need.”—Jack Lehman 

I teach workshops and publish books about writing. Who wouldn’t want to learn the tools that make writing work, especially if this is something you have always wanted to do? My suggestions are based on theories of acting, but here is what astounds me. After people learn what they need, why don’t they use them?

A better question than how to be a good writer might be, why don’t people who want to, become one.

I think there is a reason, and once that’s removed, who knows.

My intention is to address this elephant in the room. I think it is the one thing that will make the difference in terms of results, but bear with me. This is not what you are used to.

Around Midnight: How to Write a Short Story in One Long Evening

New Midnight Cover

“Jack Lehman’s handy short-story writer’s guide will appeal to both aspiring and established authors. The advice is rock solid (“Good writing doesn’t tell us, it listens to us and allows us to do something life doesn’t”) and the writers and filmmakers that Lehman cogently discusses and dissects are first-rate storytellers (Raymond Carver, Patricia Highsmith, David Mamet, Andre Dubus, Orson Welles, Ingmar Bergman). Best of all, “Half Past Midnight” includes six of Lehman’s own powerful short stories and he shares their genesis and often deeply personal secrets. Buy this book. It will change how you write. It may even change how you think about your life.” – Bob Wake, Cambridge Book Review

Lehman, Jack, Around Midnight, $8, Zelda Wilde Publishing, 78 pages,  ISBN:9780974172897.

SHORTS: 100 BRIEF POEMS OF WONDER AND SURPRISE

With Shorts John Lehman gives us one of the marvelous possibilities of the prose poem: something of Midwestern American prose, something of the haiku, humor and high seriousness all in the space of five or six sentences!”—Louis Jenkins, Introduction to Poetry                                                                  

These poems capture those particular moments when the heart is overwhelmed by beauty and the imagination is electrified by some haunting spirit of voice speaking from deep within a place, an incident or a person. Shorts is the first book comprised entirely of “justified poems”a new form that capitalizes on the dynamics between the spoken sentence and fixed line length.
