Bethesda Magazine's 2017 Best of Bethesda Editors' Pick for "Best Place for Literary Inspiration"

 

John Lingan

lingan

John Lingan has written for The Oxford American, BuzzFeed, The Virginia Quarterly Review, The Baffler, and many other magazines and websites. His first book, a narrative nonfiction account of the last honky-tonk in the Virginias, will be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in Summer 2018. He lives in Rockville.

Teaching Style: John believes in the motto "read more than you write," so each week of his workshop will include an assigned reading and a few optional suggested ones. John also believes that writers can learn a lot from genres other than their own, so his classes will encourage writers to find inspiration outside their usual reading routines.
