The Writing Desk of Gretchen Griffith

writer's desk

My writer’s desk is in a room I call my study, but actually is the room my son left vacant when he left for college several years ago. There is a fouton in it for the grandchildren when they come over, but normally it is as covered over with clutter as my desk.

At this spot I have written numerous manuscripts, many of which are in the bottom drawer of the filing cabinet never to be seen again, chalked up to learning experiences. In addition to the picture book and freelance articles in newspapers and magazines, I have published three narrative nonfictions in the memoir genre.

  1. Hi Gretchen–Your book is one I featured in the upcoming December 2014 issue of LibrarySparks magazine. The theme of my Fiction-Nonfiction article is Gift Giving and Family Traditions. Your book is an absolute delight! Fun to see where it was created. 🙂

  2. Your desk is more organized than mine. Congrats on a great post. I love that book, When Christmas Feels Like Home.

  3. Gretchen, it’s so fun to see where your creativity and hard work take place. Thanks for sharing and a huge congratulations on your book!!!!
