A little National Poetry Month recap from our excellent new Poetry Editor, Kip Wilson Rechea!
YARN Reader Diana Clark gives 5 tips for finding the time and space to write in a post-college life crowded with commitments. It’s great advice for aspiring writers of any age!
[…] Since graduating college, I’ve struggled to find time to write. There are no immediate deadlines, no prompts or workshops to guide me in my self-discipline. Up until very recently, I worked fifty-five hours […]
Kerri gets the trash can of her dreams–the one that Julia Glass threw all her “bad ideas” in!
[…] I screwed up my courage and went over to Julia, stuck out my hand and said, “Hi, I’m Kerri Majors, and I want your trash can.”
Thankfully, she laughed.
And we talked a little. […]
Kerri explains why YARN will take a longer-than-usual break starting this summer.
[…] As usual, as warm June turns to hot July, we are taking a break on publishing new material. This time, though, instead of returning in September, we are going to return in April 2015, reopening for another terrific National Poetry Month, and publishing all the way through Summer 2015! […]

[…] However, I wonder: At what point can writers become readers of their own works? […]
Our latest addition to the masthead, high school junior Rachel Troy, gives us some clues about why Nancy Drew remains her fave heroine.
[…] Nancy struck the perfect balance between adventure and safety, so as not to tempt her legions of readers to try crazy things at home. She would stumble upon hidden passageways in old mansions, […]
Sad about Lindsay Vonn? Don’t care? Would you be sad if John Green didn’t have a new book in the works? Kerri’s not sure….
I saw a headline the other day (and I can’t find it now—sorry!), bemoaning the loss of Lindsey Vonn to the 2014 US Olympic Team, because she was the most recognizable face on it. […]
Inspired by a recent upset at YARN, Kerri lets you all in on a big secret of her earlier writing life.
[…] I’m not going to get all goodie-two-shoes on you and say that I learned to take the attention as a compliment; because I didn’t. Instead, I learned that to be a writer, I had to find the strength […]
