Good Writers Don’t…

... write "less" when "fewer" is called for, or "farther" when "further" is needed, or "hopefully" at all—even though these distinctions don't matter to anybody except other writers and people who shop at Whole Foods. (Good writers care about the opinion of other good writers.)

Writers Give Me Life

Posted: October 5, 2018 | By:

Ever since I stepped beyond the gates of traditional publishing, I've discovered a wide and shifting landscape of publishing options. As part of my effort to learn the customs of this new country, I found myself in Cincinnati, OH last weekend attending Writer’s Digest’s indieLab conference.

Unlike the carnival of anxiety (at least for the writers) that is Writer’s Digest’s annual pitch fest in August, this event offers a small...

A Note From Gotham’s New Head of Bookwriting

Posted: September 14, 2018 | By:

Hello! This is Michael Signorelli, the new head of Gotham’s Bookwriting Group. With two whirlwind weeks now in the bag, I wanted to take a moment to share a few thoughts about why I’m here and how I hope to serve Gotham’s unique mission going forward.

If I have learned anything about myself in the last thirteen years working as an editor (and I emphasize if), it is that I am seemingly hardwired to listen to authors. This is both a gift...

What’s Next for Hybrid Publishing

Posted: August 3, 2018 | By:

In 2012, I cofounded She Writes Press with a clear vision for what our press would be, but without a clear definition. We were creating something that combined self-publishing and traditional publishing, curating the books, and placing a strong value on editing and design, but without author platforms or a particular sales threshold driving our publishing decisions.

If you want to hire a writer, get a writer to write the ad

Posted: June 29, 2018 | By:

The company is advertising for a writing job, but it lets HR goons write the job description.

And so the company seeks a writer who is a "self-starter with ability to work independently and juggle multiple projects and deadlines." Because nothing motivates a writer like the promise of lonely desperation.
