    Bad sentences beware of Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada

    in Writing

    Woe be unto you writer, should you land in a Washington Post article titled “The five worst sentences I read in January.” When I read that post written by the new nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada, I knew two things. First, I needed to interview Lozada. Second, I was afraid to write him an email.


    Lozada’s voice engaged me because in addition to rhetorical smarts, he’s pretty funny. Though he’s been at the paper for several years, he began his new role at Book Party in January.  I’m proud to announce the March 22 episode of Behind the Prose will feature an interview with Lozada. In classic Behind the Prose fashion, I’ll learn how he approaches his own writing craft and process and what it’s like to read and write for a living.


    Besides the five worst sentences he read in January, we’ll discuss his Book Party posts including the hilarious book review “Reggie Love on life as Obama’s “chief of stuff” and the ballooning list of journalism cliches forbidden in the The Post’s Sunday Outlook section.


    Oh, and if you do find yourself in one of Lozada’s worst sentences articles,  don’t be upset. He just shames your offending sentence, not your entire book.


    Unless, I suppose, it needed it.


    Carlos Lozada is associate editor and nonfiction book critic at the Washington Post, where he has worked since 2005 in various capacities, including economics editor, national security editor and Outlook editor. Previously, he was managing editor of Foreign Policy magazine and a Knight-Bagehot fellow in economics and business journalism at Columbia University. A native of Lima, Peru, he is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Princeton University.

    Saving Families and Getting Families Saved: Special Guest Carlos Johnson

    in Entrepreneur

    Minister Carlos Johnson initially answered his call to ministry in 1991 by working with the youth at Oak Grove AME Church under the guidance and training of Bishop Gregory Ingram. As he grew to develop an even greater hunger for learning and understanding the ways of God he was later led to pursue further study and training under the leadership of Pastor Emory Moss at Strictly Biblical Bible Teaching Ministry.


    Later in 2005 he was officially ordained by Pastor Christopher Brooks at Evangel Ministries as Director of the Family and the Master’s Men ministry. A ministry set on restoring and reviving the blue print and role of men in the family.


    As he grew closer to God, he was empowered and inspired to minister to families in a greater way so:



    he created the family curriculum titled God’s Prosperous Family
    finished his second book titled “The Pains & Joys of Raising Boys"
    and launched his family ministry- Back-2-The Family Ministries whose mission is:
    Saving Families and Getting Families Saved.


    He is a faithfully dedicated husband and father, a good steward to his church as well as the people of God he serves. As he continues the fight for restoration and renewal in families, he believes with a passion:


    The strength and weakness of any organization,
    be it corporation, community, church or country
    is directly related to the strengths and weaknesses
    of the families that belong to it.


    So as God leads him he’ll continue his mission of


    Saving Families and Getting Families Saved!

  • Recovery Radio Fresno with Louis Angel and Carlos Garcia of Praise Chapel

    in Motivation

    The NNIA presents Recovery Radio Fresno with Louis Angel and Carlos Garcia of Praise Chapel in Visalia California.  Carlos wrote "My name is Carlos Garcia and I am the lead pastor of Praise Chapel Visalia, a radical church with a radical vision to see lives transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ! At one time I was lost, addicted, homeless, and hopeless. I was living a life marked by quiet desperation and no vision. In the year of 2000 my miserable life was interrupted by the love of Jesus Christ! Jesus gave me hope, healing, forgiveness, and a reason to live. Today I find myself a humble example of how Jesus can turn a mess into a message and a hopeless dope fiend into a joy-filled hope fiend. Jesus is still in the miracle working business!! If you or somebody you may know needs to hear something that will encourage you in your faith and in your recovery I encourage you to listen in on this episode of Recovery Radio Fresno!"
