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

    Backpacking on Little Money

    allison fine

    Is there anyone in the Emerging Writers network over 50? I am nearly 60 and graduating from an MFA program in May. I have a completed novel, about 50 short pieces, and 3 more novels I am now working on. Is it all about youth or can some of us elders get heard and seen as well?

    Hey Allison,

    Absolutely. I know there are at least a few others who fall into your age range and to me, emerging means much more about recognition than it does age. One of the stories that will be looked at during Short Story Month here at the EWN blog will be by Gladys Swan, who published her first collection of stories some 30 years ago.

    The big thing with youth this month is that I've elected to celebrate National Poetry Month by linking to each of the poems that WITS posts on their blog during April. WITS is Writers in the Schools, and they are located in Houston, setting up Writer in Residence programs for thousands of students in their school systems - having published authors spending one day per week for the entire school year, generating real excitement about reading and writing in the youth of Houston.
