100 authors: A year in the life diary project
Exciting diary project coming in 2024
The American Diary Project is proud to partner with USA Today bestselling author, Olivia Gaines, on a special Year in the Life project.
100 authors across many genres will chronicle their daily lives as American writers. The goal is to document the daily journey of an author from the most mundane to eureka moments in finding the perfect word to explain an emotion.
The final completed diaries will be sent to the American Diary Project for inclusion in our collection and archived in perpetuity. We’re honored to be the stewards of these unique pieces of history.
Ample support throughout the project
Olivia will provide ample opportunities for support and camaraderie for authors on this journey.
- Quarterly Zoom meetings
- Dedicated Facebook Group
- Supply list of items to get you started
- Instagram pods
- Monthly themes
- Dedicated hashtags
In Olivia’s words: We start together, we finish together.
