Calling All Aspiring Writers


From Cheryl Swope | December 4, 2016 | Reflections

Finding help for the uniquely solitary pursuit that, ironically, connects us as human beings…

Yesterday in a quiet recording studio, beloved fiction author Katie Schuermann and I talked about writing.

Look for this podcast coming soon in the Audio section of this website. Until then, here are some of my most dog-eared books on writing. I mentioned the first three but appreciated ALL of these when writing the manuscript of Simply Classical: A Beautiful Education for Any Child (Memoria Press, 2013):

Whether you are an avid blogger, published author, FB poster, or magazine columnist, or just have a story to tell… where do YOU prefer to write? How do you find the time? Is “life” a handmaiden ro writing, or a devious interruption?

To teach writing to young people, consider these tested resources or, for special needs, this newer series linked to literature or this simple program linked to Bible stories.

Why write? Consider this:

Reading maketh a full man, conversation a ready man, and writing an exact man.

Sir Francis Bacon
