John Warner is the author of seven books, including most recently "Why They Can't Write: Killing the Five-Paragraph Essay and Other Necessities" (Johns Hopkins UP) and "The Writer's Practice: Building Confidence in Your Nonfiction Writing" (Penguin), which draw upon his 20 years of experience as a writer and teaching of writing. John's first book ("My First Presidentiary: A Scrapbook of George W. Bush" co-authored with Kevin Guilfoile) was written primarily in colored pencil and turned into a Washington Post #1 best seller. Since then he’s published a parody of writing advice ("Fondling Your Muse: Infallible Advice from a Published Author to a Writerly Aspirant"), more politically minded humor ("So You Want to Be President?"), a novel ("The Funny Man"), and a collection of short stories ("Tough Day for the Army"). From 2003 to 2008 he edited McSweeney’s Internet Tendency for which he now serves as an editor at large, and writes a weekly column for the Chicago Tribune on books and reading as his alter ego, The Biblioracle. He is a contributing writer to Inside Higher Ed, and can be found on Twitter @biblioracle. John Warner is a frequent speaker to school and college groups about issues of writing pedagogy and academic labor. You can find more information at johnwarnerwriter.comRead more Read less
