The Writer’s Center Magazine—Times Two!

The Winter/Spring issue of The Writer’s Center Magazine is out—and what fun to have been interviewed for two of the features here!

In “Coloring Within the (Out)lines,” Virginia Hartman looks at the differences between writers who are plotters and those who are pantsers (flying by the seat of their…). She and I chatted as she was working on the article, and I appreciate her includes parts of our conversation alongside thoughts and tips by Alice McDermott, Jeffery Deaver, and more. Virginia is a professor at George Washington University, teaches courses at The Writer’s Center, and is the author most recently of The Marsh Queen. Find out more about Virginia and her work here.

Later in the issue, Anu Altankhuyag looks at “Writing After College” with a panel including Abdul Ali, who’s taught at several area universities; Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes, a professor at the University of Maryland; and both Gregg Wilhelm and me from George Mason University. Anu was actually one of my own students at Mason, and I’m thrilled now that she’s on staff at The Writer’s Center and doing great there—a good start to her own life after college!
