Before the book is in print, the article glows on the screen, or the essay finds its way onto the pages of a newspaper or literary journal, it is an idea. Often the road from that first spark to publication is long and, usually, it is solitary.
Forming North 24th shifted the paradigm of working solo to working collectively and more productively. From our first workshop, our writing group became the antidote to this isolating profession. Meeting at least twice a month, we have learned from one another’s writing. We have also seen our work benefit from our fellow writers’ careful reading. We’ve published scores of books, articles and essays, but that is only part of what we’ve achieved.
Of even greater value is what each of us gains by gathering to talk about craft: an ever-deepening understanding of how to tell a story and a solid faith in the writing process.
In addition to writing, we edit, report, teach, interview fellow authors, moderate panels, and speak at conferences. For inquiries, contact us either via TK North 24th email or reach out directly to individual writers (contact info is on each writer’s bio page).
