Ten Brooklyn Writers and How They Write


Writing is hard. Or, no, wait. Writing is easy. Everyone can write. But not everyone can write well. And because we are interested (very interested) in people who can write well, we decided to ask some of our favorite writers what their secrets are. As expected, the answers we received varied greatly, and are very specific to the writer at hand, each of whom is pretty wildly different from the others. Some of the Brooklyn writers we spoke with are novelists, some are memoirists (some are both!); some are comedians, some are bloggers (again, some are both!); all are intelligent, astute, successful, and are, at times, just as tortured by the words they put down as are the rest of us. And so, in the spirit of torture and creation and other good things, may we present ten of our favorite Brooklyn writers and the secrets behind how they write.


  1. How is it possible that of all the known male writers in Brooklyn you guys come up with two men out of ten
    in this story……men don’t want to talk about it?
