In Bill's own words, "Whether it's fiction or non-fiction, interviewing or speaking to groups, I am always interested in the intersection of creativity and everyday life. Everyone is the author of their own life; some of us write that life with a pen."
Please join us for a lively talk on what we love about the craft of writing!
This a reprint of Bill Kenower's essay “Four Reasons,” from his recently released book “Write Within Yourself: An Author's Companion,” which he so graciously shared with me and my audience during our interview.

"Bill Kenower writes with great insight about writing, but Write Within Yourself is about far more than the act of putting words on paper. It is about passion and creativity and knowing yourself, about the joy of chasing plastic bags caught in the wind and the fear of writing something that doesn't feel like you. Like Brenda Ueland's classic If You Want To Write, this is a book you'll want to keep on your nightstand or desk, always available, ready to inspire you."
—Erica Bauermeister, bestselling author of School of Essential Ingredients.
“Write Within Yourself is not another how-to-write book, thank God, but something much more crucial to writers: a why we write book. These thoughtful, insightful, and downright lovely essays on writing – and life – show that Bill Kenower gets what it means to be a writer. This is a book to keep nearby for whenever your writer-spirit needs feeding.”
—Deb Caletti, author of the Honey, Baby, Sweetheart, and He's Gone.
