15th Anniversary Spotlight — Julia Gibson

Each day for the 15 days leading up to the WAW Open House (October 7, 2012, 2-5 p.m.), we’re going to feature a current or former participant who’s completed a major project (book, film, album, academic credential). We’ll find out what they learned that helped them with their work.

Project: THE COPPER HAND (Tor Books 2013)

From Terry’s workshops I learned the necessity of community.  Writing is so solitary, and we like that part.  But without my writing compadres, several of whom came my way through Terry, I would have lost heart long ago.  Over time I’ve built a robust collection of critiquers, taskmasters, commiserators, tipsters, technowizzes, guiding lights.  Not all of them are writers or even readers, but they encourage me to succeed.  Who’s on your list of writing buddies and cheerleaders?
