Hi, I’m Will Weaver.
I’m a writer from Minnesota. My Midwest roots are important to my writing, but that’s me dressed up for the National Books Awards in New York City where I was a recent judge. In my writing I always aim for a closely observed setting–one that I know well–but I’m really after universal themes–matters of the heart that connect us all. So if you’re a reader on your own search, thanks for visiting my site. You’ll find fiction and nonfiction for adults and young adults. If you’re an aspiring writer or just like literary conversation, take a look at my blog, “In The Write.” Welcome!
"As a writer Weaver is that rare, real thing–a backwoods pitcher with a 98 mile-per-hour fastball."
