On Writing : an occasional series

Has it been a year already? It's been twelve months since I discovered (thanks to Sarah Mangold) the website for the NPM Daily, and absolutely loved the short essays presented on a variety of subjects surrounding the nebulous idea of “on writing.” I would highly recommend you wander through the NPM Daily site to see the pieces posted there.

The occasional series I've been curating since, "On Writing," over at the ottawa poetry newsletter blog, has been progressing quite nicely, and I've included an updated list, below, of those pieces posted so far. A number of the pieces have been quite astounding, and I hope that there might just be something in at least one or two of these that simply jump out at you and can't let you go. Just who might be next?
