Product Description

All serious writers know that each word they write reveals something significant about their beliefs, something about their reason for creating, something about the one for whom they write. After all, writing lays bare the soul.
In this series of intimate reflections on life and writing, critically acclaimed and best-selling novelist Bret Lott calls authors to pursue excellence in their craft through five fascinating essays and an extended memoir that explores everything from the importance of literary fiction to the pain of personal loss.
Learn here what it means to be a writer who navigates the tension inherent to being a Christian in the public square-and to being an artist made in the image of God.

Endorsements

"Letters and Life is nothing less than an invaluable gift—a wise, wonderful, and desperately needed primer on what it means to be a genuine Christian writer and artist." -Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author, Bonhoeffer
"In this lively collection of essays, Lott is determined to bridge another gap—the sometimes uneasy tension between the world of literary fiction and the broader community of faith." -Gregory Wolfe, editor, Image; author, Beauty Will Save the World
"Bret Lott has dared to write an impossible book—a serious and candid set of meditations on what it means to be a Christian writer living in a secular society that neither respects nor even understands his faith." -Dana Gioia, poet; former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts
"Lott is one of America's finest writers and editors; this book reveals him to be one of our greatest mentors to writers of faith as well. Letters and Life brims with wisdom and advice to all who bear the call toward an authentic journey of a writer. It is a gift for all readers who desire to know more about the creative process and to infuse their creativity into their lives." Makoto Fujimura, artist; founder, International Arts Movement
