Hi, I’m Theo Pauline Nestor, creator of the Writing Is My Drink blog, a blog for writers coming into their own and finding their voice. Here you’ll find interviews with writers, 26-minute memoirs, writing advice, lists of “What I’m Digging Now,” book reviews (once in a great while), news about my writing and teaching life, and more. Slake your thirst; find your voice.
I’m also the author of Writing Is My Drink: A Writer’s Story of Finding Her Voice (And a Guide to How You Can Too) (Simon & Schuster, 2013) and How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed: A Memoir of Starting Over (Crown, 2008). I teach at the University of Washington and at Hugo House in Seattle. I’ve produced unique events for writers that focus on craft, inspiration, and community and feature speakers such as Anne Lamott, Cheryl Strayed, Julia Cameron, and Natalie Goldberg. I’ve also taught webinars such as Memoir Essentials, Writing Is My Drink, and How to Write a Modern Love (That Stands a Chance).
