Description

This audiovisual recording from March 22, 2001 as part of the 32nd annual UND Writers Conference: “Worklife/Lifework” features Joy Williams, Ofelia Zepeda, Natasha Trethewey, and Jim Robison forming the panel “The Heart of the Work.” The moderator opens by reading Gary Snyder's “Removing the Plate of the Pump on the Hydraulic System of the Backhoe.” The panelists discuss their sense of work, how their work life factors into their artistic life, the physical aspects of work and how they affect the creative process, the evocative power of literature, work and realism, the notion of excessive work in revision, their writing about the body, how play factors into work, the influence of other work, and working in uninspiring occupations. Zepeda closes by reading “Hot Tortillas.”

Moderator: Cliff Staples.
