I want to share some news that I hope will interest some of you: In the next week or two, the Village Writing School will begin publishing a column by me every other week in their on-line Newsletter. Each column will address a single issue faced by writers. The first two columns will look at Conflict and Geography. I’ll keep them short (maximum of 300 words) and direct. Each column will offer some practical recommendations along with some background theory. I will be posting the columns here on my blog with links to the resources I’m discussing. If you are a writer, or if you just like to think about what makes writing good, I hope you’ll join me.
