ELLEN MORRIS PREWITT, WRITER

Hi, I’m a writer, published in Image Journal, Gulf Coast, Alaska Quarterly Review, Hotel Amerika, Fourth Genre, EAP, Barrelhouse, River Teeth, and elsewhere. For two decades, I practiced law in Jackson, Mississippi. When I turned to writing, I wrote radio commentaries, magazine columns, short stories, and essays. Paraclete  Press published my first book, Making Crosses: A Creative Connection to God, in 2009. I have two self-published novels, a bespoke novel, a writing “how to” book, and an award-winning audio short story collection, Cain’t Do Nothing with Love, that’s been downloaded over 50,000 times worldwide.

My current project is the novel, IN THE NAME OF MISSISSIPPI, whose first chapter was long-listed in the Craft First Chapters contest. Earlier versions were Short List Finalist in the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Competition (novel-in-progress) and semi-finalist (25/600) in the James Jones First Novel Competition. 

I divide my time between New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

peace in creativity, Ellen
