Discussion & Analysis

Each month David Hicks and Paul Matthew Carr discuss the craft and the process of writing.

Using example from novels, short stories and poetry, as well as TV and film, we’ll dissect great passages, beautiful scenes and characters, and investigate the process writers have employed in order to create their work. Along the way we’ll be joined by special guests – bestselling authors, poets as well as up and coming writers – to get their advice and learn the habits that make them successful at what they do.

David Hicks
David is the author of the debut novel, White Plains, which will be published by Conundrum Press in 2017. Excerpts from the novel have been published as short stories in Glimmer Train, Colorado Review, Specs, Saranac Review, and South Dakota Review, along with other stellar journals.
Paul Matthew Carr
Paul is a writer, author and designer. He spends an inordinate amount of time on the Internet blogging about silly things and even more time making things up and then attempting to convince people they are proper stories. He also talks into microphones from time to time.
