UPDATE ---- JAMA PROVIDED FREE ACCESS TO BOMBACK'S ESSAY FOR A LIMITED TIME!! --- THANK YOU JAMA!

Think you don't have time to write? Andrew Bomback is a physician and writer (with toddlers and a wife) but he's still managed to write a novel, a textbook, many academic papers, and first-person essays.

On Sunday, February 15, we'll discuss his two nonfiction essays, "I Know That Elmo is Not a Child Molester" and "Errands" published on Full Grown People and in JAMA, respectively. "Errands" reached an audience of 300,000 readers and received an amazing response.

In both essays, I get a strong sense of Andrew's voice and we'll talk about how he conveys that voice in different genres.  If you'd like to get a copy of "Errands," here is the citation info: Bomback A. Errands. JAMA. 2006; 295(7):731-733. doi:10.1001/jama.295.7.731.

Download the essays, read them, and be ready to call in with your questions about writing, life, and the writing life!
