Writers' Words -
I love collecting quotations, stories, snippets, and snaps from writers in letters, books and lyrics...and thought this would be a wonderful place to display them.

Maxwell Perkins, Editor is a collection of quotes and snippets by William Maxwell Evarts Perkins (1884-1947), editor in chief at Scribner's Publishing Company. His many contributions to the literary world include the discovery of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Thomas Wolfe, Marjorie Kinnan-Rawlings, and many other writers of the early 20th century. His page is starting off small, but with research will grow in time.
Writers on Writing, is a year of writer's quotations and is almost complete. Curious about a writer who was born on your birthday? Check it out. Have a favorite author? Send me the name and I will make every effort to find a writing quote and share it on his or her birthday.
