History LessonThe Leaky Pen was a publication of the Salt Lake Chapter of the League of Utah writers from August 1998 to October 2000. It published stories, information, resources, and tips to the Salt Lake writing community.
Regular features included a cartoon by illustrator Lauren Ball (yours truly), a letter from the editor (yours truly, again) short quotes from Shakespeare, a column focusing on online resources for writers, and an example of a line well-written from books I was currently reading.
So what is this "Leaky Pen 2.0?"Thirteen years later so many more resources are available to writers. I want a place to share them when I come across them.
Also I want a way to make the original cartoon designs available, as well as new ones that keep waking me up at 2 in the morning. I've set up a Zazzle store where writers can get—and give as gifts—their favorite cartoons on mugs, t-shirts, tote bags, and more.
And above all, I hope to share things that inspire and motivate me in the hopes that they will light fires for others as well.
