Manjula Martin's book Scratch: Writers, Money, and the Art of Making a Living is the catalyst for this discussion moderated by literary agent Ted Weinstein with authors Scott James, Manjula Martin and Kevin Smokler.
Do you write for love or money? Or both? What makes a writer's career a success? The paths taken can be planned, precarious or simply serendipitous! Three local writers present their perspectives on a literary life in its various iterations from part-time passion to full-fledged immersion. Scratch features 40 interviews and essays by local and nationally known writers who talk about their quests and struggles.
