How We Write: The Varieties of Writing Experience

How We Write: The Varieties of Writing Experience is based on the series of “How I Write” public conversations with faculty and other advanced writers conducted by Hilton Obenzinger at Stanford University since 2002. These conversations explored the nuts and bolts, pleasures and pains, of all types of writing with prominent novelists, poets, historians, physicists, critics, playwrights, philosophers, anthropologists and neuroscientists. How do writers get ideas? How do they launch into a project? Fashion arguments? Create images? Craft stories? What do they do when they get blocked? What are their strategies for revising their work? How We Write celebrates a craft that delights and dismays each of us.
