“When I was an emerging writer, Poets & Writers gave me a community when I didn’t have one. The essays and interviews exposed me to a world of people whose preoccupations and obsessions mirrored my own, people who took writing seriously and talked about it in ways I found both inspiring and challenging (which is, by the way, a terrific combination for motivation). In short, Poets & Writers gave me a sense of identity—and with it, the courage to pursue a life of creative expression.”
