Praise for Resonance

“Full of wise experience, frank advice, and dozens of useful prompts, Resonance lays bare the challenges and joys of writing and editing. Exploring topics across genres and from a diversity of perspectives, it is an essential anthology to urge and inspire writers at every stage.” – Saleema Nawaz, author of Songs for the End of the World

“A book for the shelf of every aspiring and working writer, written by some of our most thoughtful and powerful literary voices. Carleigh Baker on memory and autofiction, Kayla Czaga on the endless return of reading and re-reading, Wayde Compton on the productive rupturing of the writer’s best laid plans. These are just a few examples. Resonance will earn its title by echoing with meaning and inspiration long after you’ve finished the final essay.” – Timothy Taylor, author of The Rise and Fall of Magic Wolf
