The Longest Mile by Christine Meyer

In the course of their lifetime, one out of two men and one out of three women will be diagnosed with cancer. Many of us watch in desperation as our friends and loved ones fight for their lives. But after seeing several of her patients and her dearest aunt engage in a battle with cancer, Dr. Christine Meyer decided to embark on a quest for hope—and through happenstance and love, a team of runners emerged that empowered a community to make a difference, not only in the lives of cancer patients, but in one another’s lives. Along the way, Meyer learned that the true measure of a doctor’s success is not the number of lives saved but the number of lives…

The Way of the Mysterial Woman: Upgrading How You Live, Love, and Lead

By Suzanne Anderson MA and Susan Cannon PhD

The Way of the Mysterial Woman is for every woman who feels the call into greatness, authenticity, and meaningful living; women who are finally ready to step into their lives with mind, body, heart, and soul fully engaged and awaken their true potential. Women’s leadership development pioneers Suzanne Anderson and Susan Cannon know that we’re not alone in our yearning to meet this call. In fact, they assure us that this is a naturally occurring global imperative for women.

So we hear the clarion call, but how do we meet it? It’s almost like we need a completely new internal operating system. Fortunately, the co-authors have discovered exactly that―this dynamic guidebook offers us the upgrade we’ve been searching for.

Commercial vs. Literary Fiction

Posted by Caitlyn Levin on February 10, 2016 at 12:30pm 10 Comments

What is commercial fiction? The term gets thrown around a lot. Do you write “literary” fiction, or “commercial” fiction? As a writer, I hate this question. Labelling some kinds of fiction as commercial and others as literary implies that one is a higher calling than another. This question seems to be a favorite among writers, however. I’m only asked this question by other people who write, usually when we’re in class together. It usually strikes me as rude, because anyone who knows anything about the connotation of words (like writers do) would know that it’s a backwards sort of insult.

People usually ask this question when they consider themselves writers of literary fiction (to be said with a hoity-toity,…

How White People Can Respond to Book Publishing's Lack of Diversity

On Wednesday night (February 10), I sat on a panel to kick off the 2016 San Francisco Writers Conference. Its title was "Celebrating Diversity: Opportunities for Writers of Color in Today's Publishing Landscape." Weeks ago, when the panel was finalized and I realized I was the only white panelist, I figured I'd been invited because I identify as lesbian, and because I'm aware of publishing's diversity problem to the level of at least…
