The Longest Conversation: How the Earth Speaks to the Writer
Luis Alberto Urrea, Author and Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing, the University of Illinois at Chicago
A lifetime of writing and studying and walking has taught me one thing: every writer is being asked to pay attention, to listen to the world, and make it the story you tell. Through nonfiction, fiction and poetry, place is a major character and the responsibility of the writer. If you are not telling me about the aspens, you are not telling the whole story.
