Last November, The Airship covered eight writers who almost died before their time and how it affected their work. It was a fantastic list, but it failed to include any female writers and received a fair deal of social media shaming for it. It was embarrassing, to say the least; that’s just not what we’re about here at The Airship.
Now, we couldn’t apologize without evening the scales, so we’ve compiled a new list — and we’re not calling it “Women Writers Who Almost Died Before Their Time” (that’s looking at you, Wikipedia). Here are 10 more great writers who we almost lost before we found them:
- Thousands of rallies for climate change action were held around the world ahead of the United Nations climate talks in Paris.›
- Planned Parenthood officials said they believed Friday's shooting at a Colorado Springs clinic was motivated by opposition to abortion. ›
- And watch a man react to the modern world after spending 44 years in prison. ›
