I'm visiting two classes via Zoom in the coming week or so: Kathryn Kulpa's class "Bringing It All Back Home: The Flash Collection and Flash Novella" at CLEAVER to talk about THE MISSING GIRL and THE LUNATICS' BALL, and Will Woolfitt's undergraduate class "On Being a Writer" at Lee University in Tennessee.
Kathryn asked her students to read THE MISSING GIRL and "The Lunatics' Ball" and "Cutting Edge." I'm already getting some interesting questions from them, and a gratifying comment from one of her students:, who called THE MISSING GIRL "an incredibly visceral, impactful read! So well-done: it fueled a righteous, vindictive rage in the best way. Wow! A powerful work." I've wondered how the collection wears, since it came out just before #MeToo publicized so many heartbreaking, true stories, perhaps too many for us to take in.
Ben's home from Aberdeen and was able to help me figure out how to make the font size the same on successive pages of my ridiculously rudimentary powerpoint for Kathryn's class.
