  1. Hi Doug. I am curious about this series and the Terry Tempest Williams session in particular. How does this work? Is there a lecture or required readings?

    Thanks, Traci

    1. Hey Traci-
      The creative writing program has authors visit campus to give readings of their work. In non-Covid time these are straight forward readings with some comments from the author, then they have a reception with the author and sell some books. Then the next day they do a craft Q&A. This is new, the online piece, so they might mix it up a little., perhaps work a few questions in after the reading. The online is new for me too, but for these you can just log on and listen. 🙂
