The real writer is one
who really writes…
…Work is its own cure. You have to
like it better than being loved. —Marge Piercy

You carry stories, poems and more. You visit them, sometimes regularly – sometimes rarely. They are loyal to you, but life can have a way of intervening. JUST WRITE will restore your connection with the words that only you carry. Mary Sojourner began her serious writing when she was 45, after raising three kids on her own – make that absolutely on her own. Since then, she has seen nine of her books published nationally; been a ten-year NPR commentator and book reviewer; taught at writing conferences throughout the West; and been a columnist for High Country News’ Writers on the Range; and a private writing mentor. Writing is the most powerful tool she has found for doing what is necessary to mend – oneself and the greater world.

JUST WRITE is for those who have always wanted to write, but haven’t; those who’ve written and found themselves blocked; those who want to move their writing forward.

Mary Sojourner’s newest short story collection, The Talker, came out from Torrey House Press in March 2017. She is the author of three novels: Sisters of the Dream , Going Through Ghosts and 29; the short story collection, Delicate, essay collection, Bonelight: ruin and grace in the New Southwest, Bonelight: rituals of loss and desire; two memoirs, She Bets Her Life and Solace. She’s the author of op eds and columns for High Country News, Yoga Journal, Writers on the Range, Matador Network. She was chosen as a Distinguished Writer in Residence in 2007 by the Virginia C. Piper Center for Creative Writing, Arizona State University. She believes in both the limitations and possibilities of healing. Writing is the most powerful tool she has found for doing what is necessary to mend – oneself and the greater world. Website:
