Round Table: Writer's Craft
In theory, a studied writer should be able to take the tools from the classroom and apply what has been learned to the practice of fiction writing, but the ability to allow for creativity in technique can prove to be a challenge for any author. Dermot Healy, Heather Jessup and Harry Whitehead discuss this with host Andrew Pyper.
