Emerging Writers Festival at F & M

What an incredible three-day festival Franklin & Marshall hosted this past week! I had so much fun meeting the F & M creative writing students, their awesome creative writing faculty, and  the other four Emerging Writers–Amy Leach, Caryl Pagel, Greg Wrenn, and Claire Vaye Watkins! […]

I’ve been entirely overwhelmed with teaching since this awesome early-April event, so I haven’t had a chance to finish the post I’d started about a month ago.  I just want to say a huge thanks to the directors of this program, Erik Anderson and Katie Ford, for inviting me, for organizing, and making this three-day tour so much fun.  And the F & M students…are you kidding me! — were so smart, generous, and kind!

I had a blast hanging out at the Philadelphia Alumni Writers House, and I am just so grateful to have met these new, awesome writers!  Pictures!
