The Passion for the Thing: Learning to Write Everyday

Jay Atkinson has published seven books, with an eighth scheduled for September 2015; his articles and essays have appeared in the New York Times, Poets & Writers magazine, Boston Globe, Men's Health, and many other publications. In this brief talk and Q & A, Jay will outline strategies for getting your stories down on paper; he learned many of these practical lessons from his writing teacher and mentor, the acclaimed Souther novelist, Harry Crews, who died in 2012. Crews's most cherished piece of advice was delivered early on, when Jay was a young writing student at the University of Florida in the early 1980s. Looking his charge in the eye, Crews said, "That's the thing: to have the passion for the thing, and to remain true to it."
