Adopt a Writer

January 25th, 2008 | Jonathan Gray

Just a quick shout-out to the Adopt a Writer project put together by a coalition of TV bloggers. The idea is simple: because the mainstream media tend to be focusing only on big name writers, the writers end up sounding like whiney, greedy pigs (“JJ really needs more money, does he?”) … so they’re interviewing lesser-known, jobbing writers. The aim is to let readers get a better sense of the writers, why they write, what they’re striking for, etc. Neat idea, and the first writer to be “adopted”/interviewed is Jasmine Love. Go read.

    Thanks for the promotion! I’m one of the organizers and the person who interviewed Jasmine Love. My next “adoption” will be a writer from DIRT named Bart Baker. Look for it some time next week.

    Since you posted this we’ve adopted 6 writers and another 20 are being interviewed for adoption now. Next up: Debra J Fisher and Erica Messer, a writing team currently staffed on CRIMINAL MINDS who met years ago when they were both assistants on PARTY OF FIVE.

    I don’t have time right now, but I bookmarked your site so I could come back and read your NATPE coverage.
