On Friday, May 1, Jennifer Ahern-Dodson interviewed Laurie Patton, Dean of Trinity College of Arts & Sciences at Duke University.
This event was part of the How I Write Series, in which Ahern-Dodson talked with working writers across disciplines about their writing lives. What does it look like when they sit down to write? What sustains them in large projects? How do they overcome writing obstacles? When do they find the most joy in their work? Invited guests discussed a range of writing topics, including organizing and managing projects, generating ideas, cultivating creativity, balancing writing research/teaching/mentoring/administrative commitments, the role of peer review and community support for their work.
