Suzette Martinez Standring is a columnist and blogger nationally syndicated with GateHouse Media for “Suzette’s Spiritual Café.” Although she considers herself a “technosaur,” she took First Place for Online, Blog and Multimedia Columns in the 2013 competition for the National Society of Newspaper Columnists. Her newest book, The Art of Opinion Writing: Insider Secrets from Top Op-Ed Columnists, has an early 2014 release date through RRP International. In her national workshops, she has a special fondness for those who yearn to write, but worry they lack the skills or a voice important enough to be heard. “You’re mine,” she says. Ms. Martinez Standring is the author of the award-winning book, The Art of Column Writing: Insider Secrets from Art Buchwald, Dave Barry, Arianna Huffington, Pete Hamill and Other Great Columnists, which is used in journalism courses nationally. She is a past president of The National Society of Newspaper Columnists, and host and producer of “It’s All Write With Suzette,” a cable TV show featuring authors and columnists. She lives happily ever after near Boston. When stuck on deadline, she walks her little dog, Mojo, and lead paragraphs fall out of the trees.
