"On a good day, I am still convinced I have the best job in the world. Even after all these years, the unique delight in discovering a great unpublished work hasn't diminished. Sometimes you find something new and you just say Wow!"

Content Coaching
for Aspiring

"Writers are, in the first place, readers. I tell every writer I've ever known, either they are deep readers or they cannot become real writers. Read only the best and most challenging and traditional. And reread it."
Harold Bloom

"Artists and poets are the raw nerve ends of humanity. By themselves they can do little to save humanity. Without them there would be little worth saving."
