So Will; 

    Tell us about yourself?

I’m a freelance multimedia journalist, artist and photographer based in Midtown Atlanta. I have a Masters in Journalism from Northwestern and I’m obsessed with good storytelling. A dog lover, art curator, humorist, blogger, activist and sports fan, I try to take on projects that make a difference in people’s lives.



Inspiring Moment With Will Pollock Author of Leaving Triscuit

    How long have you been writing?

For as long as I can remember, but in earnest in college and after I got my first job in journalism in 1994.

    What are your sources of inspirations?

I’m a big fan of well-reported news everywhere, and I’m a voracious reader and viewer of things that keep me informed and allow me to form coherent, reasoned opinions. I call myself a “seeker and maker of non-consensus news” for a reason—and I write my own weekly humor and pop-culture blog called CrankyYank.com (in support of my book projects). I’m inspired by writers like Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi and humorists like Stephanie Miller and Bill Maher. Humor is a great way to convey and absorb information, so I always try to weave that in whenever I can.

    What made you write this book and little info about the book?

I was embarking on a 2.5 week trip to Ireland and, when faced with the stress of leaving my dog, Triscuit, I was deeply affected by it. Affected to the point where she was physically ill and I felt incredible dread and worry. I promised myself I’d take on a project that helps people who face the same dilemma. I’ve found it’s a very common experience for parents of fur babies.
The resulting book, “Leaving Triscuit: Conscious Departures, Happy Homecomings,” is an expansive look at the process of leaving and returning—with tips, comments and deeply resonant thoughts from four different animal-communication and human psychology experts. The core concept is picture imaging: where you lean in to metaphysical and real-world tools to calm yourself and your pet so that you can enjoy time away and not worry. “Leaving Triscuit” tracks all parts of the trip and how to put these solutions into action.

    What's you advice to other upcoming writers?

Keep at it, and do some every day. Be tenacious. Be a disruptor and challenge orthodoxy. Keep your contacts and previous work colleagues close because you never know when you might work with each other again. Be a voracious reader—particularly in the area(s) you’d like to focus on. Practice your pitches to editors, agents or whomever and remember that pitches need to be deeply researched; they are a direct reflection of your ability to tackle a subject. If your pitches shine, that tells the recipient that you’re a capable writer.


    What should we expect next from you?

I’m developing a number of new projects, including two coffee-table photography books and a political book on lack of funding for government areas and agencies. My next book will be “EIQ: Everyman’s guidebook to developing Emotional Fortitude” and is a wide-sweeping deconstruction of how emotional intelligence in men needs to be developed, cultivated and celebrated. I’ll be talking to a wide-range of people, including psychologists, comedians, politicians and artists.

Thank you for this opportunity!
