Words, Not Ideas: How to Write a Book.

A professional writer who also coaches other writers, helps us find ways to dust off our manuscript and finish that masterpiece that’s been calling our name from under those piles of aspirations.

Wine, wilderness, and words brought him to Portland, Oregon, where he serves as editor of Eater Portland and regularly writes for Northwest Travel Magazine. Mattie has contributed to 11 books on culinary travel and 9 travel guides to Italy and the United States, and he also provides developmental editing services to help others write books. He got his start interning at McSweeney’s Publishing and ZYZZYVA literary magazine. See Mattie’s writing and photography portfolios at
