For the Thirsty Writer in You


August is Rain month here at Tweetspeak Poetry. So you’ll be treated to posts featuring Rain or Water, from some wonderful fiction and non-fiction writers, as well as poetry writing projects, like our Rain/Water Book Spine Poetry Project.

And, of course, we’d love to remind you to quench your writer’s thirst with a copy of our award-winning title Rumors of Water: Thoughts on Creativity & Writing. Twice named a Best Book of 2011!
