When I was working on my master’s degree, I became friends with W. Scott Olsen, then also working on his. We used to sit around the Heidelburg and pontificate in the way that only master’s students in creative writing can.
Now looky here . . . both of us have gone on to successful careers and have new books out! I’ve not yet finished all the essays in Scott’s new one but am excited to! What I’ve read so far is lovely. Hoping to get him down here to do a reading/signing soon.
Here’s a link to the book description and ordering info.
