The last time Stephanie Danler, Anna Noyes and Molly Prentiss were in Aspen, they were unpublished and anonymous. As Emerging Writer Fellows at Aspen Summer Words in 2014 and 2015, this trio of extraordinarily talented young writers went to work on the books that would change their lives.

All three saw their debut books released last spring: Prentiss’ novel “Tuesday Nights in 1980” in April; Danler’s novel “Sweetbitter” in May; Noyes’ short story collection “Goodnight, Beautiful Women” in June.

The writers will return to Aspen on Tuesday to discuss their work and close the 2016-17 Winter Words author series.

Aspen Times Arts and Entertainment Editor Andrew Travers talked with all three women about their paths to becoming published authors — below are a few of their words; read the complete story in the March 23 edition of the Aspen Times Weekly or at http://www.aspen times.com
