About

tara lynne grothWrite Naked is a writing life cut open.

This site launched in 2011 and is maintained by Tara Lynne Groth, a freelance writer in the Raleigh, North Carolina area. She lives in a small town with the love of her life. When she’s not writing she is chasing their backyard chickens or tweaking a bread recipe. She loves food, Paris, National Parks, and barre. The ballet one, not the beer kind.

Here you will find vignettes from the freelance writing life, behind-the-pen scoop on articles, tips for working with editorsoverviews of conferences, interviews with publishers, guest bloggers in the publishing industry, and a few miscellaneous blogs on travel and motorcycles with a writerly twist.
