"Perhaps the sentences I write are the seams that hold me together. Perhaps, that's the real reason I write. Perhaps, in the end, it's the only reason."
– These thoughts, and more, were prompted by my Election Night 2016 experiences. I share them all in my latest newsletter at http://eepurl.com/cn0S25. (Don't miss the December issue – subscribe today at http://eepurl.com/bwsLb1 or on any page of my website, www.markdavidgerson.com)

A Super-Saver Pre-Holiday Special!
You never know what you'll find when you open your storage unit. What I found when I rummaged through mine recently was a small stack of unexpected cartons of the first editions of my first two books: The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write and T...

When I pulled into Sedona, AZ for the first time 20 years ago today – on Sept. 16, 1997 – I couldn't know how much my life would change over the next 2 decades...and how much Sedona would contribute to so many of those changes. Read about my transformational experiences in Sedona (and much more) in my Acts of Surrender memoir – in paperback or ebook from your favorite online bookseller or signed by me to you from www.actsofsurrender.com

My amazing daughter turns 18 tomorrow. To mark the occasion, I share one of the most difficult moments of my life, the day I had to leave her behind. It's a video excerpt from Acts of Surrender: A Writer's Memoir...

"'I'm not going to see my daughter grow up.' I don't remember where I was or what I was doing when that intuitive impression struck me, only that I had heard few phrases in my life as heart-stoppingly painful as that one. It was a premonition that, in its own way, would come true."

Sex in the '90s
That's 90s as in age, not as in the 1990s, and the nonagenarian in this first-person excerpt from my novel  The Emmeline Papers  is the feisty, eccentrically iconoclastic Emmeline Mandeville, who is as unashamedly sexual at 92 as she was at 19, back in the ...

Whether you're a reader, a writer or both, you'll find something to inspire you in this MDG trailer!

“Speaking truth to power is never easy, Mr. President . . . art is about inclusion. The Humanities include a vibrant free press. You have attacked both. You released a budget which eliminates arts and culture agencies. You have threatened nuclear war while gutting diplomacy funding . . . your words and actions push us all further away from the freedoms we are guaranteed.”
– from the resignation letter submitted today by all members of the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities

"It is easy to denounce Nazis. Republican lawmakers, if you truly repudiate this march and this violence, then repudiate voter-ID laws. Repudiate gerrymandering. Repudiate police brutality. Repudiate mass incarceration and private prisons. Repudiate the war on drugs. Repudiate the fact that black Americans have still not been compensated for the unpaid forced labor that was foundational to white financial stability. Repudiate gun control obstructionism. Repudiate the Muslim ban. Repudiate the wall. Repudiate anti-abortion legislation. Repudiate abstinence-only education. Repudiate environmental deregulation. Repudiate birtherism. Repudiate homophobia and transphobia. Repudiate your own health care bill, which would have led to the deaths of thousands more people than a Dodge Challenger driven into a crowd. Repudiate your president."
– Lindy West, in The New York Times
