What we're about
WordSmitten Writers Workshop
Meet working authors and journalists in a relaxed atmosphere to brainstorm about "the book biz" and form productive critique groups. Come to a WordSmitten Writers Workshop to review work, trade literary tips, make friends and have fun with professional and dedicated fiction and non-fiction writers.
Tune in to the WordSmitten "About the Books" talk radio show.
Recent guests include Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Jane Smiley (A Thousand Acres), Elizabeth Strout (Olive Kitteridge) and Edward P. Jones (The Known World). Listen to writing tips from Sara Nelson, former editor-in-chief of Publishers Weekly.
On About the Books, hear author and journalist, Mr. Gay Talese (Honor Thy Father) who wrote the article "Frank Sinatra Has a Cold" for Esquire, talk about breaking new ground in writing his memoir and in the new creative journalism.
Discover an interview with Natalie Goldberg (Writing Down the Bones), noted as a celebrated writing teacher, and listen to her discuss her innovative "prompts" for getting a story started.
