I recently wrote a guest post on the #amwriting website about cross-training for writers. Since launching the West Chester Story Slam, I've come to believe preparing short non-fiction stories and telling these stories in front of a live audience is a fun way to practice the writing craft. You can read the post here. How do you cross-train?
On a side note, are you a member of the #amwriting community? Writers throughout the world use the #amwriting hashtag as a water cooler stop to discuss projects, network and simply cheer each other one.
