- So many writers come to class with one question dominant in their mind, 'How do I make a living from this?' It's a fair enough question and one I always try to answer well - but it saddens me that it so often overshadows the more relevant questions of 'why am I writing' and 'what am I saying' and 'how do I keep it honest.'
[NOTE: I get many requests to read and comment on manuscripts, which I have to regretfully decline. However I do occasionally work as a consultant for The Inkwell Group If I am accepting MS's at the time and you ask for me by name, they will pass your work on to me.
