Chamonix Poets and Writers

What makes an effective writing-intensive program?  How can novice and well-established poets and writers be supported in the development of their craft? As a poet in residence at the Chamonix summer writing program, I spoke with fellow writers and caught up with novelist and English professor Mike Dahlie from Butler University to discuss their summer writing initiative in the French Alps. Invited writers have included Cheryl Strayed, Ann Hood and Erin Belieu, among others.
