Description

In this recording from April 1, 2009 during the 40th Annual UND Writers Conference, “Wit,” Marco Candida, Karen Russell, Jacqueline Osherow, and Greg Williamson participate in a panel entitled “But Seriously.” They discuss a number of topics and answer various questions, including whether or not they think that they write with “wit” and which authors they think are funny/witty and who influence their work. They also talk about whether they think that there is any topic too serious to write about in a humorous fashion or whether certain inherently serious subjects need wit to be palatable. They also discuss the craft of writing, along with whether certain forms of poetry are inherently “witty,” among other topics.

Panel moderated by Marcus Weaver-Hightower.
