Portrait of Lee Kofman by Eric Morgan as inspired by his reading of The Dangerous Bride.

Welcome to Lee Kofman’s website. This website is all about literature and writing, which really means – about living an ‘examined’ life, to paraphrase Socrates. Here Lee shares some of her favourite books, writing resources and exercises, her published works and her blog ‘The Writing Life’, where she writes about what she has learned about writing from the books she reads, writers she meets and from her ongoing trial-and-error practice. She also blogs about all she doesn’t manage to learn about writing despite her daily efforts.
