Eric,

A colleague of mine, Bette Frick, has developed an incredible presentation
called "That's a Good Question" which is exactly along these lines -
nurturing young writers to learn how to ask good questions and also teaching
more advanced writers how to hone their skills even more. I think that this
might have been published as an article in an issue of the Intercom magazine
for the STC. Let me know if you are a member or not, and if not, I can
search the archives for you and provide you the article. I am also cc:ing
Bette on this email as she might also be able to point you in the right
direction more quickly than I could.

I highly recommend the article.

All,

I was coaching a relatively new college hire the other day on asking good
questions
and communicating effectively, and thought it might be good to get other
perspectives.

I tend to point folks to http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
, which
is spot-on IMHO, but pretty harsh and not exactly er....nurturing.

How do you coach junior writers (or anyone, for that matter) to ask better
questions?

Eric
