Digital recordings of lectures from July 2008, January 2010, July 2010, and January 2014 residencies are now available for download at the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson website.
Here’s what alumnus Rolf Yngve (fiction, ’12) has to say:
“For anyone needing a feel good for themselves and craft boost, Friends of Writers has just uploaded over two dozen new lectures from the likes of Charles Baxter, Stephen Dobyns, Mary Szybist, Debra Spark — the list goes on. Maurice Manning talking about the “Fat Man’s Misery, or, The Mind of the Poem”, Robin Romm riffing on “Great Neurotics” (think Portnoy’s Complaint or The Bell Jar), another amazing Marianne Boruch journey of the mind and soul — Kevin McIlvoy climbing a new lecture ladder. These digital downloads cost $5.00 apiece, but every dime goes in scholarship support for students in the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers.
It beats listening to talk radio in the car, eh?”
Friends of Writers thanks Rolf for all his hard work preparing these lectures for distribution.
