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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com 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:
As an author of fiction and nonfiction, a theater director, an educator, and the co-founder of Heart-Forward Theatre Company, Lisa Kramer takes us in an intriguingly different direction when it comes to getting inside the head of a writer: crafting for performance as well as for the written page. Her essay leads us on an exploration of not only the collaborative nature of creating a play but how, for her, both reading and writing in many forms are an exciting adventure in words “danc[ing] across a page.”
