New from Poets & Writers
She Writes, a Web site [and Ning network] established for women writers, has joined the ranks of literary social networking utilities. Launched in June it aims to provide a place "where women writers working in every genre, in every part of the world, and of all ages and backgrounds, can come together in a space of mutual support."
In the latest installment of Writers Recommend, author Laura van den Berg writes, "When I'm stuck on how to do something, I'll reread a book that accomplishes what I am attempting -- The Quick and The Dead by Joy Williams is one I return to often -- and try to figure out how the author pulled it off."
