  1. Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
  2. The Triggering Town by Richard Hugo
  3. On Writing by Stephen King
  4. Ernest Hemingway on Writing by Ernest Hemingway
  5. The Book on Writing: The Ultimate Guide to Writing Well by Paula LaRocque
  6. Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer by Roy Peter Clark
  7. The Elements of Style by Strunk and White
  8. The Writing Life by Annie Dillard
  9. Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art by Madeline Le’Engle
  10. Notes to Aspiring Writers by Brooke McGlothlin
