The Writer’s Life: The Margaret Laurence Lectures

This is a great book about the 25th anniversary of the Lecture Series. It brings the best writers and everything that they say is necessary for a writer’s life.

Some of the stories are humorous. Others are more serious. But together, they are a threasure-throve of great tips for writers of all vintages from beginner to more mature writer.

Before an audience of peers, our greatest writers have revealed insights into their work, shared the challenges they faced in forging their careers, and give their unique perspectives on what it meant to be a part of an emerging national writing community.

Now in celebration of the series’ twenty-fifth anniversary, The Writers’ Trust is brining these lectures to the general public for the first time.

The result is a sparkling collection that ranges from sharp social commentary to deeply personal meditations.

This is a book that I will read and re-read. It is a book that every writer should read at some point in their lives. Why not now?
