It’s Your Turn! Guest Blogs from Readers and Writers

This is the part of the web site where you get to express your ideas, questions, hopes, values, and thoughts in general about the challenges and excitements of writing, creating, and promoting your work – or to share the fun and thrill of what you’re reading.

I’m asking both readers and writers whom I know – and I’ll eventually go out on a limb and put out a call to some people I don’t know, but who I think will have something interesting to say.  The focus will be mainly on mystery/suspense, romance, fantasy, horror, SciFi, or YA, in keeping with the interests of most of my readers – but that doesn’t mean that I won’t have writers bring in topics or authors that you might not quite expect to fit these areas.  So, do respond here on this site or by sending me an email at  syang@worcester.edu.  But keep it clean – Natasha will be watching!

 

If you have ideas for a blog appropriate to this site (250-500 words), contact me at syang@worcester.edu and I can see if your proposal would work.  All final decisions for editing rest with me (and my co-editor), since I’m the one everyone will blame if something looks hinky, content- or grammar-wise!

This month’s feature:

14.  “A Born Writer” Lisa Lieberman

Lisa Lieberman writes a poignant blog that explores how writing can grow from sadness that we may not often understand or be able to express directly until it flowers into something reader and writer can experience feelingly.  Talk about your negative capabilities.  Lisa is Vice President of Sisters in Crime New England, an important mover in the organization’s outreach, and author of the Cara Walden series,  set in the shadowy 1950s atmosphere of noirAll the Wrong Places  and Burning Cold, her first two novels, are now joined by The Glass Forest, set in 1957 Saigon, which reshapes the vision projected by The Quiet American.
