Walter Mosely, author of the popular EZ Rawlins detective stories, believes studying poetry can improve a writer’s fiction. In This Year You Write Your Novel, he says:

If the fiction writer demands half of what the poet asks of herself, then that writer will render an exquisitely written novel.

What does he mean?

We’ll explore reading and writing poetry to add depth to your fiction on April 8, 2015 in LitChat’s Writing Wednesday with Robyn McIntyre.
