Writers on T***p

T***p may consider himself the Hemingway of Twitter, but the 470-plus signatories of An Open Letter to the American People oppose him in his presidential bid.

Who are they?

  • novelists, poets, playwrights, genre writers, and humorists
  • New York Times bestsellers, and up-and-coming writers
  • winners of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Medal for the Arts, and MacArthur "Genius" grants
  • They come from some 37 US states, plus Washington, D.C.

This website explores who these writers are.

Find out which writers are veterans, which are from red states, which have received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, and which write on immigration.

  • Pulitzer-prize winner Junot Díaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, one of many writers who takes immigration as a theme

  • Mark Sundeen, author of The Man Who Quit Money, one of our Editor's picks

  • Tobias Wolff, a veteran among the Writers, author of the memoir In Pharaoh's Army.
