"Jerry Lanson is a talented writer and an even more talented writing teacher. This book will be invaluable to anyone who wants to apply time-tested techniques to 21st century storytelling."

I started my journalism career tied in knots each time I sat down to write. Writing, I find, is still hard work, but there’s little I enjoy more. This year, I finished a book that shares the story of my writing struggles and includes tips on what I’ve done to overcome them – at least most of the time. Good stories bridge boundaries. With a little guidance, we all can write them. It’s my hope that my latest book, Writing for Others, Writing for Ourselves: Telling Stories in an Age of Blogging can help provide that guidance. I’ve also provided links to my co-authored books and other examples of my work. I teach journalism at Emerson College in Boston, and you can reach me there at firstname.lastname@example.org. So please look around. You’ll find links to a sample chapter; my other books; and blogs, articles and columns about subjects ranging from politics to travel. Thanks for stopping by.
