Barbara Kussow, Writer

“For us, there is only the trying. The rest is not our business.” – T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

“[Everyone] ‘writes’ in a way; that is, each person has a ‘story’—a personal narrative—which is constantly being replayed, revised, taken apart and put together again. The significant points in this narrative change as a person ages—what may have been tragedy at 20 is seen as comedy or nostalgia at 40.” Margaret Atwood, from a 1990 interview with The Paris Review

Barbara Kussow is the author of Ch. 21, “Writing for Literary Magazines After Retirement,” Rowman & Littlefield, 2014. Available on Amazon.
