Whether or not you’re in a part of the world that celebrates Thanksgiving, we want to take this opportunity to let you know how grateful we are to you, WU community–for your support, for your thought-provoking comments, and for persevering with us these many years.
Regular programming will resume on Saturday with a new post from Gwen Hernandez. Write on.
Writer Unboxed began as a collaboration between Therese Walsh and Kathleen Bolton in 2006. Since then the site has grown to include ~50 regular contributors–including bestselling authors and industry leaders–and frequent guests.
In 2014, the first Writer Unboxed UnConference (part UNtraditional conference, part intensive craft event, part networking affair) was held in Salem, MA. Learn more about our 2019 event, ESCAPE TO WuNDERLAND, on Eventbrite.
In 2016, the Writer Unboxed team published a book with Writer’s Digest. AUTHOR IN PROGRESS: A No-Holds-Barred Guide to What It Really Takes to Get Published has been well-received by readers who seek help in overcoming the hurdles faced at every step of the novel-writing process–from setting goals, researching, and drafting to giving and receiving critiques, polishing prose, and seeking publication. James Scott Bell has said of the guide, “Nourishment for the writer’s soul and motivation for the writer’s heart.”
