In 2020, Writer's Digest is celebrating 100 years of publication. As a result, we're putting together lists of 100, and we would love your help. For this list, we're trying to compile our favorite authors, whether they're fiction, nonfiction, poetry, literary, mystery, science fiction, romance, western, etc.

Our formal question: Who are your favorite authors?

Pick one author (your absolute favorite), or pick several (because it's so hard to pick just one). And share your answer below in the comments.

We're interested in authors of all genres: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, children's, and/or some other hybrid. So include the author names and what you like about them.

Here are the guidelines:

  • Provide an answer to the question "Who are your favorite authors?" in the comments below.
  • Answers can be funny, weird, poignant, thought-provoking, entertaining, etc.
  • Remember to include your name as you would like it to appear in print.
  • Deadline for commenting this time around is February 4, 2020.
  • Only comments shared below will be considered for publication, though feel free to share your answers on social media with the following hashtags: #WDReaders #FavoriteBooks.
