People always ask me, "How did you become a book writer?" and I say, "I found Writers at Work." It was there that a few random essays about my childhood began to coalesce into what would become my first memoir. Without the inspiration, guidance, feedback and support I got - and continue to get - from this group and its outrageously insightful leader, Terry Wolverton, I would not have one book, much less two. If I ever have to write a book without WAW, pray for me.
— Eric Poole, author of Where's My Wand? One Boy's Magical Triumph Over Alienation and Shag Carpeting.
