Draft is a series about the art and craft of writing. Failure in writing is not like failure in business, where you lose money and have to fire everyone and remortgage your house. Measured against your ideal of yourself. In the last few years, Philip Roth and Alice Munro decided to put down their pens. They should be allowed to stop failing on a daily basis, if they want to, in their eighth decades. But the rest of us are stuck.

By turns poignant, hilarious, and practical, Writers on Writing brings together more than forty of contemporary literature's finest voices. Pieces range from reflections on the daily craft of writing to the intersection of art's and life's consequential moments. Authors discuss what impels them to write: creating a sense of control in a turbulent universe; bearing witness to events that would otherwise be lost in history or within the writer's soul; recapturing a fragment of time. Others praise mentors and lessons, whether from the classroom, daily circumstances, or the pages of a favorite writer. For anyone interested in the art and rewards of writing, Writers on Writing offers an uncommon and revealing view of a writer's world.
