As we readied American Writers Review for press, we asked some of our contributors to tell us their thoughts. Give a look.
With each new issue of American Writers Review, the editors and writers tried to find the best writing to share with their readers. After a brief hiatus, Pat Florio, our founder, is back, with D Ferrara, her co-editor of Jewels of San Fedele. Pat and D discovered their complementary skills could produce something extraordinary
After co-founding the Jersey Shore Writers and the original East Meets West American Writers Review, I found it only natural to save D Ferrara from herself when she blurted out a promise to publish the "jewels" of a writers' retreat in Chianti. We created a wonderful book. We didn't kill each other. We decided to be partners.
I used to think that writing kept me sane. Maybe it did. But with age, came a Vespa - evidence that writing may have other side effects. Then Pat Florio asked me to work with her on American Writers Review. It seemed an even better result.
