Non-Fiction Recommendations

Every month on my podcast The Writing Sparrow, I talk to another writer about their routine and which book on writing has taught them the most. On this page you’ll find the non-fiction library build entirely from those recommendations. The titles are in alphabetical order and include buy links as well as links to the corresponding episode.

Happy reading… and happy learning!
