The Wednesday Web Browser for Writers by Erika Dreifus on September 28, 2011 0 Elise Blackwell blogs about the Squaw Valley Community of Writers (and summer writing conferences more generally). Reflections on the question: What is a story? Really enjoyed this inspiring and instructive interview with author and editor Matt Bell. A new column on The Millions is focusing on “Post-40 Bloomers,” writers “whose first books debuted when they were 40 or older.” Hurray! Last week, I had the privilege of adding my voice to others paying tribute to memorable writing teachers on the Fiction Writers Review site: I wrote about the amazing Sands Hall.
