Member Spotlight: Meredith Tax

Why is writing important to you and why do you think it’s an important medium for the world? It is a way to share the experiences, thinking and history of people from all corners of the world and in all positions in those corners.

What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer’s block? I don’t get writer’s block. I have learned that when I have a few days of feeling anxious, irritable, and unable to work on anything without knowing why, this means I am about to start some big new writing project.

What is your favorite time to write? Late at night.

What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received and would like to impart to other writers? Study history.

What excites you most about being a writer in today’s age? The possibility that my work could help lead to change.

Meredith Tax’s The Rising of the Women: Feminist Solidarity and Class Conflict, 1880-1917 (3rd Edition) is out today with Verso.
