Meet the Author

Write on Edge: where inspiration meets community. Write on Edge (formerly The Red Dress Club) was created as a place for writers to gather, exchange ideas and learn something about the art of storytelling. We welcome any and all writers, regardless of level - anyone interested in writing has a place here. We are also open to writers of all genres: Fiction or non-fiction. Fantasy, young adult, chick lit, memoir - there are no limits. You don't have to join to participate in the club. We have two weekly prompts. Tuesday we have a fiction/non-fiction prompt, called Red Writing Hood. You write your piece on your personal blog and link up on our site Friday. Our memoir prompt, RemembeRED, comes out Friday, and you link up on our site Tuesday. Feel free to comment on any of our other posts on the site. We bring you guest posts from published authors and others in the writing industry, a weekly featured blogger and posts from The Red Dress Club hosts on writing. Even though we have changed our name, we still are inspired by a blog post by Jenny of The Bloggess about a red dress - thus the name of this blog. Jenny wrote: "I want, just once, to wear a bright red, strapless ball gown with no apologies. I want to be shocking, and vivid and wear a dress as intensely amazing as the person I so want to be. And the more I thought about it the more I realized how often we deny ourselves that red dress and all the other capricious, ridiculous, overindulgent and silly things that we desperately want but never let ourselves have because they are simply "not sensible". Things like flying lessons, and ballet shoes, and breaking into spontaneous song, and building a train set, and crawling onto the roof just to see the stars better. Things like cartwheels and learning how to box and painting encouraging words on your body to remind yourself that you're worth it." For many of us, our Red Dress is our dream to become a published writer. Maybe we just need a little extra motivation. Maybe we just have to try to Write on Edge.
