|People Along the Way: Writing Friends
Writing is a solitary occupation. Being part of a writers' group helps me to
work through the challenges of the writing process and prepares me for the
publication of my work and all that will entail. As a first-time novelist, I learn
from the seasoned writers who have already published one or more novels.
When I get together with other writers to share our work in progress, I not
only get feedback on what I'm doing right, but also discover areas of my
work that need improvement.
The poets and writers, listed below with their genres, have played important
roles in my journey as a writer. Some still share my journey, while others
have moved on.
Angela Consolo Mankiewicz (1944-2017):
My dear friend - American poet and playwright - died on March 7, 2017, after
a 13-month battle with lung cancer. See my tribute to her, "When a dear
friend dies," on my blog.
Rich Samson, one of the first four members of our GLAWS critique group,
passed away unexpectedly in October 2009. He holds a special place among
the people who have joined me on my journey.
