It’s never too late!


If like me, you forgot someone on your holiday gift list, yourself included, it’s not too late to give the writers and avid readers in your life the jolt of inspiration delivered by my new book, “Writers on Writing.”

It’s a collection of interviews with 55 distinguished writers and editors, including Susan Orlean, Pulitzer Prize winners Lane DeGregory, Tom French and David Finkel, acclaimed poet Patricia Smith and Edgar Award-winning mystery writer Bruce DeSilva.

Of the book, Roy Peter Clark, the king of writing advice books, said: “By asking four questions to 55 of our finest writers and editors, Chip Scanlan has hosted one of the greatest writing conferences you will ever attend.”

So I’m giving Amazon gift cards to those I left behind when ordering the book as a gift, or sending them directly the Kindle version. In the digital age, it’s never too late for procrastinators like you and me.

Happy Holidays,
