Recent Writing Wyoming Blog Spot features Conference resident faculty Susan Marsh. She has had both a memoir and a novel published this year.

Check out her blog on Writing Wyoming and learn something about writing beyond setting. Follow Writing Wyoming Setting is used to serve the author’s needs; place resists this. It can intervene as I write, the same way my characters do: “Cross that out – I wouldn’t say that,” says a character as I struggle with early-draft dialogue. Place likewise demands to be portrayed on its specific terms.

Let’s make an effort to connect, collaborate and support writing, especially in our own communities. In Wyoming, our community is LARGE.
