how to be a writer

Fourteen writers respond in a collection of nine interlocking essays, meditations, and lists, all framed by excerpts from an interview with Michael Martone, and all aimed at pulling the curtain back, just a little, on that most important character we craft: The writer.

Claire Guyton, the creative brain behind this piece and its collage format, has this to say about the piece:

Michael demystifies the writing life and empowers his students because he talks about writing-related subjects that so many other writers and teachers seem to believe are beside the point.

And:

All writers make choices every day about what kind of writer we want to be. Many of the decisions we make are subconscious—why did I choose to take my author photo in my back yard? On the other hand, much of what we do is intentional.

Michael inspired Hunger Mountain to ask other writers about:

    • The Author Photo
    • Publishing: Do It Yourself ?
    • Other than books, what do you read?
    • Other than books, what do you write?
    • What kind of author are YOU crafting?
