Scissortail Creative Writing Festival - Morning Sessions, Part 2, April 2
We returned to the Estep Auditorium for 3 more writers, & an unexpected birth, so to speak. The readers were introduced by Mark Walling, Chair of the English Department at ECU.
George McCormick was another writer I had seen & heard read here at earlier festivals. Today he read from a forthcoming novel, Inland Empire. The narrator in the story was a photographer who has moved to Oklahoma & while doing research about the State discovers annotations in a book on, of all things, grain elevators that starts a chain of research, thoughts — about learning to see.
It was an over-whelming start to the Festival. More to come.
