Tell Me About a Writer You Wish More People Knew About

During last week’s Walk It Off, I asked Rax King if there was an author who inspired her to pursue a career in writing. She then told me about Lisa Carver, who she said, “is not super well known outside of avant-garde zine type circles.” Rax went on to say, “Lisa Carver turned my world from black and white to color. She's such a great writer. She deserves so much more attention and recognition than she gets […] She should be huge.” Which got me wondering, who is a writer that you think should be more widely known? Maybe it’s a favorite book that you come back to again and again, or maybe it’s a long dead poet, or a fan fiction writer that brings joy to your life. Whoever it is, let’s recommend some lesser known writers to one another.

Walk It Off remains free, but is a reader-supported publication. Please consider becoming a paid subscriber for as little as $5 a month.
