Residency day 8

We’re in the final stretch on the residency. Our morning residency was Hal Hartley talking nominally about dialogue but as much talking about how his writing process builds on the standard three-act 64-scene screenplay format but then is willing to move beyond that.

After workshop and lunch, we then had a panel on “Literary Professionalism,” and then the semi-annual book arts seminar, at which I did get a chance to see a couple things I’ve not done before (as opposed to the preceding three), with marbling paper and a different sewing pattern for multi-signature books that doesn’t use ribbons or cords.

The evening reading was Beth Ann Fennelly and Tom Franklin who read their work separately before joining together to read their recent novel written in collaboration, The Tilted World.
