In The Literary Ladies’ Guide to the Writing Life, acclaimed author Nava Atlas presents twelve celebrated women authors and draws on their diaries, letters, memoirs, and interviews to reveal their views on the subjects of importance to every writer – from carving out time to write, to conquering inner demons, to developing a “voice,” to balancing the demands of family life with the need to write. Atlas provides her own illuminating commentary as well and illuminates how the lessons of classic women writers of the past still resonate with women writing today. This beautifully illustrated book, filled with more than 130 archival images, is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to write, no matter where they are on their creative journey.
