Many of life’s treasures remain constant in the state of simplicity—a lesson that author Molly Friedenfeld learned when she began her journey in search of ancient wisdom. When Friedenfeld moved from her head down to her heart, it became clear: Love is simple. Truth is simple. Peace is simple. Joy is simple. It is from the benevolent heart space that one comes to the realization that we are all divinely connected—that we are all one. When we realize we are here on earth to grow our souls, we begin to look beyond ourselves, and we come to know this truth: what is for our highest good is also good for all. When we act upon this knowledge, we become difference-makers, and we inspire others to find unique ways to spread around this newfound love, truth, peace and…Continue
Sarah Glazer takes a second look at her reaction to an experiment.
I’m still not sure if I like novelist Ali Smith’s Artful. It has been marketed as a writing breakthrough, "refusing to be tied down to either fiction or the essay form," according to the Amazon description. Or as I would describe it-- a story framed around a literary art appreciation lecture.
At first Smith’s writing feels like traditional fiction. This Scottish-born writer is the author…Continue
I first "met" today's guest author, Amy Sue Nathan, when she interviewed me for her blog, Women's Fiction Writers. I was on a layover at a packed, noisy airport, standing in a coffee line as we spoke by phone, but Amy somehow made that impossible interview so good that Ballantine bound it into The Four Ms. Bradwells paperback. We met in person at the Tribune Lit Fest a couple months later, and what struck me there, too, was her determination. She was writing a novel, The Glass Wives. And now here it is--just out yesterday from St. Martin's Press! RT Book Reviews calls it "a poignant reflection of forgiveness and the complicated definition of family," and says, "the plot and characters are heart-warming and the ending is inspiring and thought-provoking.” -…Continue
With the proliferation of publishing options—traditional publishing, self-publishing, partner publishing, package publishing, e-books, p-books, and so on‑-many authors find themselves stymied by which route is best for them and their writing. Even more confusingly, there is increasing discussion of hybrid models, involving choosing one route for some work (for example, publishing a novel traditionally) and another path for other writing (publishing short stories via the Kindle Singles program.) How do you decide the best path(s) to publication for you?
First, take the time to read up on the different choices available to you. There’s an abundance of information online, and setting aside an hour a day to cruise…Continue

In a couple of weeks, Hedgebrook’s second Vortext Salon for women writers will take place on Whidbey Island: three extraordinary days of workshops and conversation, in a beautiful setting, led by six renowned writers and teachers: Dorothy Allison, Karen Joy Fowler, Elizabeth George, Jane Hamilton, Ruth Ozeki and Gail Tsukiyama.
Vortext was just a gleam in Karen Joy Fowler’s eye a year ago, when she came to us with…
I finished my novel, Halcyon Days, last month. I am lucky to have some beta readers who have been great help in getting me to zero on what the novel is REALLY about, and let me tell you, I have been rather shocked by what my unconscious mind has dished out.
When I started this project, I thought it was going to be a YA novel about a teenage werewolf, Genny, living in a crappy trailer with her younger siblings and her moody uncle Clayton. She struggles with a bad reptuation in…
