Over the summer someone at Poets and Writers asked me to submit to their Writers Recommend online feature.
I’m writing to invite you to contribute to Poets & Writers Magazine’s online feature Writers Recommend, in which authors who have been featured in our pages share art, music, writing prompts, films—anything and everything—that has inspired them in their writing. It’s a place our readers turn to for ideas that will help feed their creative process.
We also see it as a way for our readers to engage with the authors whose work they read and admire. And we hope you see it as an opportunity to connect with readers of your book.
I’d be thrilled if you would send us a suggestion (fifty to a hundred words) for something specific (the more specific the better) that has inspired you in your writing—a song or album you listen to; a painting or play worthy of experiencing; a favorite exercise, routine, or activity you rely on to stay productive; or anything you think other writers should investigate.
Here’s what I submitted:
