Self-published Hackettstown author Eric J. Matluck will be here to discuss the art and craft of writing fiction. He has written 4 novels (2 available on Amazon, “Notes for a Eulogy” and “The Judges”) and 11 short stories. He’s been writing seriously for over 30 years, and he will discuss the inspiration behind writing in general and the actual events that inspired him to write his last 2 novels. In addition he will talk about how he incorporates writing into his day-to-day life (having a full-time job), how it feels to write, what happens when the inspiration doesn’t want to come, and how he knows he can consider a work finished.
Writing has truly been a lifelong ambition of his, as he tried to write his first novel at the age of 5 and continued to experiment until the age of 18, starting on, but never getting very far with, more than a dozen books.

This program is part of the “Art and Craft of Writing” series.

This program is sponsored by the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Division.
