Overview

Bent on Writing offers readers a permanent and lasting record of the work of 55 talented writers who have performed at the reading series "Clit Lit," and a "how to" guide for establishing their own community-based literary events. More than an anthology, this book is a gathering of three-dimensional talent for the two-dimensional page.
