Jot That Down: Encouraging Essays for New Writers
A freshly minted book composed of essays from published authors who are yet to become household names. The contributors fail from a vast array of writing genres.
From the publisher: You. Are. A. Writer.
Writing isn’t easy. Becoming established as a writer is even harder.
This collection of 19 short essays explores the writing life. Each offers tips intended to help new authors find time to write, to hone their craft and to prepare for publication.
There’s no magical shortcut to publication. New writers must pay their dues. These essays share practical, encouraging advice to help the next generation of wordsmiths more easily find their literary voice.
Most of the contributors—published authors, themselves—have spoken at the Jot Writers Conference, a free annual event in western Michigan emphasizing both the craft and the community of writing.
