Welcome to the blog about the writing life in Washington, D.C.
Maybe you’re a writer who lives and works in the city, or wants to. Or maybe you’re an editor or a publisher. Maybe you’re just interested in local trivia and history, like where Gore Vidal is buried or where Sinclair Lewis once lived. Or in facts and figures-- like how many working writers there are in the city, and how much they make. If so, The Washington Writer might be for you.
Every month, in addition to half a dozen short articles, TWW will include three regular features:
• Facts & Figures
• Capsule, mention of a notable novel, nonfiction book, play, poem (or collection), or other literary work connected to the city
• Puzzle: trivia, a word game, “What/where is this (picture)?”, or whatever else I’m capable of coming up with
