Happy Hatchings & Holidays!

Seasons Greetings from all of us at Freerange Nonfiction!

We’ve had an amazing year and we want to thank you for your continued support. The upcoming new year at Freerange promises to hold lots of exciting new things. But we couldn’t wait until 2011 to start two new features on the Freerange website .

This month marks the start of FRESHLY HATCHED, a new Freerange feature where we’ll be posting outstanding, hand-selected essays from our fabulous Freerange readers. Our inaugural featured Freeranger is Davita Westbrook:

” . . . I didn’t hear the voices that night; I felt them.  The tone was urgent, the words were indistinct.  We were in revival at the old church. I was fourteen years old and all around me, folks had ‘caught the spirit’.  Some spun and danced with abandon, others spoke in tongues I didn’t recognize, and still others kneeled in the wooden pews, crying out to God for deliverance, for forgiveness, for mercy . . .”

Also, dont’ forget to back and check out our website next Wednesday, when we’ll launch our other new monthly installment of “Five Questions For . . .” where we’ll dig deep into the minds of your favorite creative nonfiction authors and learn what makes them tick, tock, and churn out such amazing work. Stay tuned for our inaugural Q & A with the fabulous Kim Kupperman, author of author of a critically acclaimed collection of essays, I JUST LATELY STARTED BUYING WINGS (Graywolf, 2010), which received the 2009 Katharine Bakeless Nason Prize in Nonfiction from the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference.
