Best Virtual Literary Litertainment During Lockdown: Wordier Than Thou

Wordier Than Thou

Don’t tell Wordier than Thou founder Tiffany Razzano that writers are solitary creatures. She’s spent years developing a community of writers in Tampa Bay who regularly get together for various literature-themed events. And when the pandemic put a damper on in-person get-togethers, Razzano rapidly found fun and exciting ways to socialize with her fellow writers online via Zoom and Facebook Live. While others suffered from a temporarily-paralyzing pandemic-induced lack of motivation, Razzano launched “Quarantine Storytime,” “Personal Library Tours,” and “Tell Us About Your Quarantine.” Her commitment to Tampa Bay’s community of writers during these difficult times was inspiring. —Jennifer Ring
