    When the United States was new, a lapsed minister named Elihu Palmer shared with his fellow Americans the radical idea that virtue required no religious foundation. A better source for morality, he said, could be found in the natural world. For this, his Christian critics denounced him as a heretic whose ideas endangered the country. One of the most infamous American freethinkers in his day, Elihu Palmer has been largely forgotten. No cache of his personal papers exists and his book has been long out of print. Yet his story merits telling, Kirsten Fischer argues, and not only for the dramatic account of a man who lost his eyesight before the age of thirty and still became a book author,...read more

We were understanding what it really meant to have come home."...read more

She knew that even excellent projects could be rejected based on these surmountable issues because those on the receiving end of proposals most often don't have the time to walk writers through needed adjustments. And writers can't clearly judge their own creative output. The checklist Kracht has created helps writers make their...read more
