writing – health – life
states of not knowing
Being the monthly newsletter from Marcus in which he discusses books, writing, and stuff about being sick. Every issue there’s an interview with someone with interesting things to say about illness, creativity, and other more random stuff.
Whether you’re a writer and not sure what you’re doing, whether you’re ill and no one can tell you exactly why, or whether you’re just making your way through life and feeling bemused about it all, this may be the place for you. Or it may not, but it’s all free, so have a look anyway, it won’t kill you. Subscribe now if you’d like to get every episode – use the form on this page.
