Recommended Reading for Writers

Welcome to a new resource!

After our June 2020 online meeting, we received several recommendations from our panel regarding great books to use in improving our craft. We decided to add a page on Hoosier Ink so all members could benefit.

If you have a favorite that you think is worthy of this list, please let us know on our ACFW Indiana Facebook page.
