In 52 personal, vulnerable letters, writer Andi Cumbo-Floyd shares her personal experiences of the writing journey, offers her perspective on the writing life, and shares encouragement to help writers through the hard and the joyous days of being a writer. The letters cover everything from what it feels like to sign a book contract to the times writing draws out emotion we didn’t realize to the need for space in our daily lives. The letters are intimate and honest, each written with love for the writers Cumbo-Floyd holds dear.
The advice and inspiration in Love Letters to Writers lands where gentleness and a swift kick in the pants meet. It’s wonderful to read in one sitting or just a little bit, day by day, for extra motivation to continue the work of writing.
— Suzanne Terry
