The Art of Dancing in the Rain

Dance Cover-1

“You already have all the writing tools you need.”—Jack Lehman 

I teach workshops and publish books about writing. Who wouldn’t want to learn the tools that make writing work, especially if this is something you have always wanted to do? My suggestions are based on theories of acting, but here is what astounds me. After people learn what they need, why don’t they use them?

A better question than how to be a good writer might be, why don’t people who want to, become one.

I think there is a reason, and once that’s removed, who knows.

My intention is to address this elephant in the room. I think it is the one thing that will make the difference in terms of results, but bear with me. This is not what you are used to.

Around Midnight: How to Write a Short Story in One Long Evening

New Midnight Cover

“Jack Lehman’s handy short-story writer’s guide will appeal to both aspiring and established authors. The advice is rock solid (“Good writing doesn’t tell us, it listens to us and allows us to do something life doesn’t”) and the writers and filmmakers that Lehman cogently discusses and dissects are first-rate storytellers (Raymond Carver, Patricia Highsmith, David Mamet, Andre Dubus, Orson Welles, Ingmar Bergman). Best of all, “Half Past Midnight” includes six of Lehman’s own powerful short stories and he shares their genesis and often deeply personal secrets. Buy this book. It will change how you write. It may even change how you think about your life.” – Bob Wake, Cambridge Book Review

DOGS DREAM OF RUNNING

Dogs Dream of Running is a favorite volume of poetry by Wisconsin poet, John Lehman, founder and editor of Rosebud, literary editor of the Wisconsin People & Ideas and publisher of the new digital, pulp-fiction magazine, Lit Noir.

These poems are full of spunk and insight. But what I like best is that the collection itself creates a picture of our times that is fascinatingly entertaining. There are real life encounters with Orson Welles, John Updike and Robert Mitchum as well as such diverse subjects as “two-fisted advertising,” Alzheimer’s disease, the teaching of high school English, film noir, etc.  Even people who don’t like poetry  are going to enjoy the great storytelling of  Dogs Dream of Running. And for people who like poetry, or teach it in schools, this book is  a must.”Jim Sharping
