Writers' Words -
I love collecting quotations, stories, snippets, and snaps from writers in letters, books and lyrics...and thought this would be a wonderful place to display them.
Letterpress is the beginning of a collection of correspondence by the written word. Perhaps a love letter, perhaps something much simpler, but all with words, carefully chosen, beautifully written.
Maxwell Perkins, Editor is a collection of quotes and snippets by William Maxwell Evarts Perkins (1884-1947), editor in chief at Scribner's Publishing Company. His many contributions to the literary world include the discovery of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Wolfe, Marjorie Kinnan-Rawlings, and many other writers of the early 20th century. His page is starting off small, but with research will grow in time.
The Erasmus Pages is dedicated to Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536), the heart, soul, and pen of the Renaissance.
Writers on Writing, is a year of writer's quotations and is almost complete. Curious about a writer who was born on your birthday? Check it out. Have a favorite author? Send me the name and I will make every effort to find a writing quote and share it on his or her birthday.
