Share this story with your world:

R. Eric Thomas delves into the writing of his first book, HERE FOR IT (Ballantine) on Wednesday, April 8, at 11:00am (ET) on Istragram. Through Writer’s Routine, Random House’s Instagram photo series, authors invite readers into their creative spaces, share their writing routines, and give exclusive insights into their books.

From the creator of Elle’s “Eric Reads the News,” HERE FOR IT is a heartfelt and hilarious memoir-in-essays about growing up seeing the world differently, finding unexpected hope, and experiencing every awkward, extraordinary stumble along the way. In words by turns hysterical and heartfelt, Thomas reexamines what it means to be an “other” through the lens of his own life experience.

Thomas is a senior staff writer at Elle online, where he has written about pop culture and politics, with distinctive humor, since 2016. His writing for the theater has been seen on stages around the country; he won the Barrymore Award and the Dramatists Guild Lanford Wilson Award and was a finalist for the Steinberg/American Theater Critics Association New Play Award. Off the page, he is the long-running host of “The Moth Story Slams” in Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.
