inspiration in one convenient package. . . a clear-eyed view of the business

“Yes, writers, there is life after the MFA. Eight or nine years before I found an agent and a publisher, I found a writers’ group.

—Wally Lamb, New York Times bestselling author of ‘The Hour I First Believed’ and ‘I Know This Much Is True.’
