Book Fight!

Tough love for literature

Writers Ask: Heaven Is For Real


This week we revisit the topic of writers’ conferences, and try to offer specific advice on how to find a good one that will actually help you improve your work. We also talk about “the classics,” and whether writers need to be well-versed in some version of the literary canon. Plus: Mike channels a questioner who’s writing from heaven, and our first drunken email! (Well, at least the first time an emailer has identified himself as drunk.)

If you’d like to send us emails–drunkenly, soberly, or from some pleasant place in between–you can do so right here, from our site, or at bookfightpod(at)gmail(dot)com. You can also ask us questions via Twitter, or by visiting Tom’s house on a pleasant spring evening and waking him up by pelting his window with tiny pebbles.

As always, you can stream the episode right here on our site, or visit us in the iTunes store, where you can download our entire back catalog and subscribe (for free) to never miss another episode.

Thanks for listening!

  1. Your Burpo segment gave me chills.

  2. When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the thought of a
    user in his/her mind that how a user can understand
    it. Thus that’s why this paragraph is perfect. Thanks!
