In her Preface, Urquhart describes these stories as her first forays into fiction. As a poet, she had begun to find that her interest in narrative and “subtle explorations of character” demanded a different, more expansive form. She says, “I found that there was not enough physical space in a single lyric poem for what I wanted to say, and not enough breadth for me to get to know what I needed to learn.” Even narrative poetry proved insufficient, and I found it amusing that her first story is… Continue

I hope to see some submissions from SheWrites members and would especially appreciate it if you'd pass this on to anyone who has written or might want to write nonfiction about sex. The 2009 and 2010 editions won IPPY (Independent Publisher) Awards and I hope this edition is just as groundbreaking.

Although I'm guessing a lot of you are not the age of the teen who wrote to me, you might still want to learn how to stay focused.
It's not always a piece of cake.

A lot of my writer friends, male and female, have been as distressed as I have about the recent statistics published by VIDA: Women in the Literary Arts. And yet I can't say I (or really any of the other women I know who write) were terribly surprised. Women write a lot of books, and women buy a lot of books, as…

The weariness has taken hold. Years of recession inevitably produces, pardon the phrase, malaise. We may not be falling farther down, but neither are we observing new growth. Though our tastes, as well as our ideological stances greatly differ, every tree that does not produce good fruit has been threatened to be chopped down and thrown into… Continue

Aaah, word play:) I went to see Tangled last week. I could say that as a storyteller, I am interested in any example of the craft, particularly in the romance genre, so felt duty bound to attend. But I'll be honest; it's a Disney fairy tale so I am ALL over it. Continue
The good thing about the recent animated films rather than the older, classic Disneys is that they are dynamic enough to appeal to adults as well as children, without stooping to sly, rude humour. Not that I've anything…
