This collection of quotes on writing by writers comes from Australia's Aerogramme Writers' Studio. It includes Kurt Vonnegut on semicolons, Joyce Carol Oates on the difference between technique and content, and this from Dorothy Parker: "If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they're happy."
