I’ve always held it to be self-evident that good writing is good writing, no matter the platform. For those of us who put a lot of time and effort into trying to get words right for blogs, online columns, and other venues, it’s gratifying to see web writing being taken more seriously all the time.
That’s why I’m very happy to report that when W.W. Norton publishes The Best Creative Nonfiction, Volume 3, edited by Lee Gutkind, it will include a piece that first appeared at this blog. The anthology will be published in July 2009 simultaneously as a trade paperback and as an issue of the influential journal Creative Nonfiction.
My sincere thanks to Lee and the editorial board at Creative Nonfiction. Show your support for their decision to showcase new voices, ideas, forms and approaches in creative nonfiction by pre-ordering The Best Creative Nonfiction, Vol. 3, or picking up Volume 1 and Volume 2, which received Publishers Weekly starred reviews.
