Writers on Writing: 2-Minute Drill

Iowa City, home of the famous Iowa Writers Workshop, is a UNESCO City of Literature. Esteemed writers visit and teach at the University of Iowa campus in big numbers, and many have been interviewed on video as part of the City of Literature project. 

For those with short attention spans, here's a quick hitter they've produced featuring a number of authors, including Nathan Englander, Marvin Bell, Jane Smiley, Tom Grimes and others answering some of the most common questions aspiring writers always ask. 

Have a look and a listen, but get ready to hit the pause button. The Q & A comes fast and furious, as fast as Eli Manning or Tom Brady moving their teams into field goal range for the winning kick.
