Drink Celebrates New Home with Giveaway/Author Interview Series

After much angst and gnashing of teeth, I decided to move from blogger to wordpress.  It wasn’t that bad of a move!  And, I’m really excited about the look of the blog now. And I love the simplicity of the new address: WritingIsMyDrink.com. If you followed me over from my Blogger roots, thank you! If you’re new to the blog, welcome!

To celebrate the new look, I will be hosting a series of interviews on the writing process with several writers of  recently released titles. The series will start November 15th, and there will be some signed books to give away.  So, yeah, make sure you come back for that.   After the series, expect more stories about writing and the making of writers.  Any writing topics you really want to hear about?  Leave a comment.

Thanks for reading!

      Hi Jorja!

      So here’s the break down on my teaching/coaching:

      Teaching: I teach a 9-month course called Writing the Memoir for the University of Washington’s Extension Program here in Seattle.

      Retreats: Once a month I hold a writers’ retreat in my house (again, Seattle). We workshop pieces and focus on varying topics, such as writing the personal essay or what the first chapter of a memoir needs to accomplish.

      Individual coaching: I work with individual writers around the country via phone (once by skype, can be done) helping them with their manuscripts. Most of the projects are full-length memoirs, but I’ve also worked with writers writing individual essays, essay collections, a couple of novels and a couple of cookbooks. I charge 60 an hour.

      Thanks for asking!
      Theo

    Hey, the new sites looks VERY cool!

  4. Congrats on making the move. I like your new site a lot and I’m looking forward to the giveaways and interviews!

    Topics about writing that interest me:

    1) Web-only sites that pay writers a fair wage
    2) Tips on doing investigative reporting
    3) How to catch up when there are 450 unanswered emails in your inbox
    4) Do you always have to respond to “fans” who send you unsolicited mail? What about to people who write under bogus names to flame you?
    5) Benefits to being a jack-of-all-trades v. benefits to being a niche writer

      Jennifer,
      These are great topics. Thanks!
      I’m thinking I will be bringing guests in to do some of the heaving lifting on some of these, although I’ve yet to meet the person who can answer #3.

    who, in the interest of full disclosure, is one of the writers whose books will be in next week’s giveaways…
