 Partnering for Greater Writing

By Barbara Oden and Judy Vandiver

Finding a good match for a writing or critique partner can spur you on to greater writing and greater success as a published author. A good writing partner understands a writer’s heart, fears, and thinking. It is someone who becomes the other half of your writing journey; someone who knows and understands you. Your spouse, other family members, or friend may be supportive of your goal to become a published author, but if he or she isn’t a writer, they will not understand the process and will probably think you are from another planet.


Authors, Barbara Oden and Judy Vandiver, share their experience of working together to more than double their efforts. In Partnering for Greater Writing, they share:

• Three realities of a writer’s life,
• Five reasons people fail to achieve their dream of being a published author,
• What to look for in a critique or writing partner,
• Where to find a writing partner,
• Why goal setting is important to your writing career ,
• Advice on maintaining schedules,
• Fun things to spur creativity with a writing partner,
• Appendix of online resources for writers.

  • Paperback book sells for $7.50 plus postage. Email to order.
