MEDIA REVIEWS

"The essays are detailed and sophisticated enough to appeal to writers, particularly novice writers, yet general enough to appeal to readers who are not necessarily writers."
- NewPages


"Reading Lit From Within reminded me of the best of the genre, including Anne Lamott's Bird By Bird, Nancie Atwell's In the Middle and Stephen Koch's The Modern Library Writer's Workshop."
- The Plain Dealer


"This collection of 15 essays, written by literary luminaries such as poet Billy Collins, novelist Francine Prose and nonfiction author Rick Bass, offers wonderful insight into the working habits of some of America's most celebrated authors.... Smart, concise and thought-provoking, this collection is a treasure for writers looking to improve their craft."
- The Writer
"Representing widely diverse approaches, the result is a useful book containing a wealth of creative writing wisdom."
- Book News
"The pieces in Lit from Within can be laugh-out-loud funny or seriously contemplative; either way, they all contain nuggets of wisdom that will speak to anyone who sits down to write."
- Ohio Today
