FESTIVA: The Writer's Edition, August 7, 2008
The Monitor informs of a writing seminar in South Texas. The article begins:
"For three weeks this summer students at the Summer Creative Writing Institute put pen to paper.
South Texas researcher and writer Rob Johnson guided students through the process of researching local history as part of the University of Texas Pan-American program, which is now in its sixth year. They received tips on conducting archival research and oral history interviews and learned about the craft of writing non-fiction.
Then students put their new skills to work by producing an essay, memoir, biography." READ MORE ABOUT UT- Pan American's multi-disciplinary approach AT http://www.themonitor.com/entertainment/students_15632___article.html/summer_writer.html
