Write Uptown Columbus 1st Write-a-thon

Travel writer, memoirist, and novelist Mary Morris, who teaches a workshop called The Writer and the Wanderer at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, likes to send her students on field trips to light the creative torch. "I like to get my students out of the house, and a little out of their heads," says Morris, whose most recent book is the memoir River Queen (Holt, 2007). "Go away. Listen. Eavesdrop. Find something new. Bring back a souvenir. What do you take with you? What do you leave behind? Sit outside in one place until a story comes to you." Follow Morris's guidance: Go on a field trip of your own, and discover the wanderer within you.   From Poets and Writers E-Newsletter.
