Rockford has a large and active retirement community, with many perks and opportunities for senior citizens. If you are one of them or know a retired person who has a gift for writing, consider this book: Writing After Retirement: Tips from Successful Writers. . . .I recommend this book highly. . . .Check out the book online. Perhaps it’s just what you or a friend are looking for. Perhaps it could serve as a text for a group of retired writers. I am looking forward to using it in my own workshops for both instruction and inspiration. (The Rock River Times)

There is something for everyone in this book, but above all, it’s practical, down-to-earth, and sensible. It opens the mind to new paths from the traditional to online, to different genres, and to new approaches to the writing life. Regardless of the variety of offerings in this book, however, two key points remain critical. Writers have to write and writers must persist. (The Commonline Journal)

This anthology explores the many avenues would-be writers can take to initiate a career as a published author. It is filled with tips on how to write in a variety of genres and how to connect with other writers in your community. The advice it offers is realistic and portrays the challenges and the many obstacles aspiring writers face.

From the Author

Foreword by Supriya Bhatnagar, Director of Publications/Editor, The Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) George Mason University
