Award Winning Novelist, Jane Hamilton.

“It’s very important, I think, when you’re writing, to feel that at a certain point it's something private and a little bit subversive,” says Hamilton. Adding, “there's power in that.”

Award Winning Novelist, Jane Hamilton will be featured in the latest book of the Outlier Leadership Series, Outliers in Writing, set to publish in summer 2017.

In Outliers in Writing, Hamilton shares her perspective on various aspects of writing including how personal and powerful writing can be.

“It’s very important, I think, when you’re writing, to feel that at a certain point it's something private and a little bit subversive,” says Hamilton. Adding, “there's power in that.”

Hamilton is an award-winning American novelist and writer of short fiction whose work probes family dynamics with humor and deep sympathy. She lives, works, and writes in an orchard farmhouse in Wisconsin. Her short stories have appeared in Harper’s magazine. Her first novel, The Book of Ruth, won the PEN/Ernest Hemingway Foundation Award for best first novel and was a selection of the Oprah Book Club. Her second novel, A Map of the World, was an international best seller.

Dr. John Shufeldt, who created the Outlier Leadership Series to empower readers to achieve beyond their limits both personally and professionally, says he is proud to feature Hamilton in Outliers in Writing.

“She is such a powerful writer,” says Shufeldt. “Her views and advice on writing will resonate with readers looking to become professional writers.”

For example, in her interview, Hamilton stresses the importance of “unplugging” from the world in order to keep the world at bay to make something that’s true and beautiful to themselves.

Adding, “look around and see what's going on. And, don’t talk too much about the fact that you're writing a novel or a screenplay. Keep it to yourself until you have a bit of success, because you create too much pressure for yourself.”

Each book in the Outlier Leadership Series provides exclusive interview content from six professionals at the top of their field, action guides and targeted resources for those looking to enter a specific industry.

Outliers in Writing will be the sixth book in the Outlier Leadership Series. Other books in the Outlier Leadership Series include:
