Writing Is My Drink

A Writer's Story of Finding Her Voice (and a Guide to How You Can Too)

Writing Is My Drink

“Theo Nestor is a writer who, I am positive, will be heard from,” wrote Pulitzer Prize–winning author Frank McCourt, and hear from her we do in this enthralling memoir that doubles as a witty and richly told writing guide. Yet the real promise in Writing Is My Drink lies in Nestor’s uncanny ability as a storyteller and teacher to make sure we’ll also hear from you, the reader. Brimming with stories from her own writing life, and paired with practical “Try This” sections designed to challenge and inspire, this disarmingly candid account of a writer’s search for her voice delivers charming, wise, and often hilarious guidance that will motivate writers at every stage of their careers.
