Brad Thanks, Jen


Robin Spano I liked this one a lot. If you have it in your hands, I'd read it soon. Lots of value for me.

Jen Knox I actually did read this! Loved it, too. He's a name dropper, but there were some great exercises in here. I use some adaptation of some them in my classes, when I teach creative writing.


Robin Spano Right on. Yeah, a name-dropper including his own - I didn't like all his references to his own writing in an instructional vein. Where do you teach creative writing?

Ha! You're right. I paraphrase: "When I was working with Jimmy, whom you may only know as James Baldwin if you are not familiar..." So precious. I guess the literary game invites a little of that.

I work at San Antonio College, but I'm taking the term off. I love it. Do you teach/write/both?
