Whether you’re a seasoned author working to complete your third novel, or an aspiring writer launching your first blog, This Word Now will guide you through techniques for sparking creativity, crafting narrative structure, and bringing intensity to your voice and story. Through a series of essays and exercises inspired by our work in writing, workshop leading, and improvisation, we will challenge you to take your writing in new directions, leap into the unknown, and play with images, words, and ideas.
We view writing not just as a craft or a profession, but as a way of interacting with the world. The title This Word Now captures the focus on presence and passion that we aim to bring to our writing, teaching, and our day to day approach to life. We’re excited to share this part of who we are in this book.
