Ernest Hemingway In His Time

Honing the Craft of Writing

Ernest Hemingway began his career as a journalist, serving initially as a cub reporter with the Kansas City Star in 1917 and subsequently as a feature writer and a foreign correspondent for the Toronto Star. Hemingway's work as a correspondent for the Star enabled him to move to Paris in 1921 and it was here that he befriended and garnered support from such American expatriates as Gertrude Stein and Ezra Pound.
