I was going through a major life change a few years ago and wanted to find my way back to writing. I decided to enroll in Barry Hannah’s creative writing course thinking it would be fun. Boy was I ever wrong. Instead it was the most grueling and painful experience of my life and one that has forever changed who I am.
Hannah wasn’t my favorite teacher because he was nice. He was a tough cookie with his students but anyone who ever had the joy of getting to experience it knows that they are forever a better writer because of him.
