"When I was in my invisible and unmoored twenties, my most important link to the world of writing and publishing was Poets & Writers. I studied the magazine minutely, and it was through a P&W publication that I learned how to find an agent and what to expect once I'd found one. The organization is a font of serious, sensible literary advocacy."
Jonathan Franzen, Author Freedom
