Amy Ratcliffe Discusses Improving Your Writing Without Writing
November 9, 2017
On Tuesday, November 7, writer and editor Amy Ratcliffe, a two-time winner of the Sarasota Fiction Writers Annual Short Story Contest, offered an excellent presentation of her top tips for learning how to write better without writing. Such steps included the exhortation to read everything and anything to learn what works and doesn’t work in literature, observe others and listen to conversations in public, travel to encounter new people and experiences, and join a book club to hear reader feedback about other literature. She gave insightful examples of how each of these contributes to the writing quest, and how inspiration can be derived from all over.
