Nice Things Said Re: EWN

  • "Dan Wickett is serious about a good read. But the EWN email list doesn't just deliver his sure-footed reviews; it also brings you news and connections to other writers. Sign up now - he understands what readers want to know about books." Quinn Dalton, author, Bulletproof Girl

    "Mr. Wickett is that rarely heard from but best of all possible reviewers - the dedicated and knowledgeable fan. He writes clean-cutting and fresh reviews that represent a sensibility unspoiled by over-exposure to the biz of books, but deeply in love with them." Daniel Woodrell, author, Winter's Bone

    "Dan Wickett is a reader's best friend. Not only does he read and trenchantly review new work, but he looks back to books that deserve ongoing readership. I've lost track of the number of times he's led me to boks that I overlooked (or never knew about), and that were a delight. There aren't many reviewers I will let shape my library, but Dan Wickett is one." Erin McGraw, author, The Baby Tree

    Thanks for this! Its always very useful for us less experienced writers to learn from those further down the path. Wonderful advice :-)

    I was so happy to see you mention Robley Wilson. I took the first story I ever wrote to the Stonecoast Writers Conference, where he was teaching, and though he did not publish that one--thank goodness--he published a new one the following year. He loved whatever was quirky, out-of-tune, out-of sync, exactly what, in a workshop setting, tended to draw fire. His short story "Paint" from Terrible Kisses was really important to me, because it taught me to focus on the thing itself, the situation, the concrete details that shape it, and not worry so much about the hows and the whys.
