Robert E. Gard Book Available Online
The e-book, The Robert E. Gard Reader, just published,
features the writing and key ideas of Robert E. Gard, all told in a
very autobiographical and evocative way. It contains the story from
Grassroots Theater about how WWA began, even including the Creed of
WWA. There's also the text of a talk he gave, "Notes for Writers

at a WWA conference. WWA president, LaMoine MacLaughlin, wrote the
foreword to the e-book. Click on the following link to enjoy it. It
is free online.
