About the Writers' Block

The Writers’ Block is a blog for writers and readers to share, discuss, and interact around the latest in the writing and literary community. On these posts, among other things, you’ll find writing exercises, advice, interviews, readings, trivia, trends, and reviews.

The Writers' Block also hosts A View from the Loft posts. These posts go more in depth than the typical blog posts and reflect the more than 30 year history of the View publication. As part of that legacy, Milkweed Editions and the Loft pulled together the best essays from the Loft’s award-winning publication, A View from the Loft. The resulting anthology, Views from the Loft: A Portable Writer’s Workshop, is a must have for any writer’s library. You can also order the book directly through Milkweed site.

Each writer has a unique perspective and story to tell. Each story has the potential to inspire, motivate, and illuminate. We hope you’ll take some time to join this conversation of writers. Or consider sharing your own story.
