Why The Conduit?

I think writing is a type of magic, and I want to show you behind the scenes of what the process looks like. Here at The Conduit, I send monthly dispatches talking about the writing life, the reading life, and the occasional photo. This isn’t your standard craft advice—because while I know craft is important to writing, I’m more interested in the alchemy that bubbles just under the surface of any good story.

As Ruth Ozeki so eloquently questioned in The Book of Form and Emptiness, “Are words the conduit through which your desire travels, or are they just an afterthought, an add-on, a trick of your human mind to justify the prelinguistic itch that prefigures it?”

Maybe all of the above, and more? Join The Conduit’s community—and plug in to the wild electric current of books and writing.
