"I want to be a writer." "How do I improve my chances of getting published?" "Should I get an agent?"

I get a lot of emails from aspiring writers. Some of them I feel equipped to answer. Some of them I don’t…

In Part Two of my conversation with Kirk Kraft, which is posted as a preface to my lectures at the Northwest Christian Writers Renewal event, I talk about how I response to questions about how to become a writer and how to get published.

Thanks to Kirk for asking the questions.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
