The great author Joyce Carol Oates joined Twitter recently, and her feed has been filled with a long-form writer’s meditations on this new kind of online writing. Below, we’ve created a collection of her tweets about Twitter writing.
Tonight, Oates will receive the lifetime achievement award at the PEN Center USA’s Literary Awards Festival in Los Angeles.
Oates’ Twitter career began with the simple post embedded above: “Last night at the Norman Mailer Award Ceremony in NYC, Oliver Stone said beautifully: ‘A serious writer is a rebel.’” She also shared a great writing music recommendation last week: “Is anyone else haunted by Rachmaninoff’s ‘Vespers?’” Click here to listen to those classical choir pieces on Spotify.
