The Quill

13 episodes, 1955, WQED (Pittsburgh)

From WNET:

"'The Quill' is a course in writing that is basic enough to be of value to the businessman, the housewife, the engineer, or the beginning poet, novelist or short story writer. The course deals first with simple style, particularly as it applies to the selection of words; secondly, with the construction of sentences that are clear and powerful; and third, with the organization of paragraphs that are pleasant and persuasive. Throughout, the course suggests that the study of the art and craft of writing increases our pleasure in good thinking and in good reading."
