A Writing Blog

Some days ago I set up a blog for the NCCAT (North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching) seminar in writing: this year's class will stress short fiction. Linda Kinnear has named it People, Places, & Plots. Or maybe that's Places, People, & Plots. Or . . . Anyway, I'm looking forward to working with her and with Carrie Gates. Ron Rash and Brian Railsback are dropping in as well.

Most of my time on line will be spent over there during the next month. Today I posted a note from Philip Lee Williams, and other interesting things will pop up in the coming days.

While the members of the class will be North Carolina teachers who write, there should be much to interest novice writers from any place as the weeks go by. Bookmark

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
