Facing the Lion
Beacon Press, 1996 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 181 pages
Now writers or would-be writers can read the most provocative and the most useful lectures on life and craft presented at such select conferences as Bread Loaf, the Wesleyan Writers' Conference, and the Napa Valley Writers' Conference. In these addresses, Ellen Bryant Voigt, X. J. Kennedy, Francine Prose, and Marvin Bell, among others, give intimate accounts of the struggle to create something worthy of being published and read.
