Sometimes in the process of finding myself on line I find some of the best web sites for those interested in the literary world. For example, just because I was at the same fiction seminar with Leslie Pietrzyk I was name-checked on her blog, "Work-in-Progress." - http://workinprogressinprogress.blogspot.com/2008/02/fiction-seminar-on-saturday.html If I hadn't been there I may never have stumbled upon this wonderfully enlightening blog. Leslie modestly describes her site as a blog in which she explores the creative process and all things literary. In fact, her entries are startlingly insightful about this addictive and uncontrolled condition we call being a writer, and her blog is often a sounding board for some of the most interesting literary guests on the web.
BTW, when it comes to the universe of literature, Ms Pietrzyk knows whereof she speaks. She has two novels in print and her short fiction has appeared in several prestigious journals. She has received fellowships from the Bread Loaf and Sewanee Writers' Conferences, the KHN Center for the Arts and the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, and teaches at both Johns Hopkins University and the Writer's Center. If you want a panoramic view of the world of writing today, bookmark this site and visit it often.
