Ursula Le Guin's Riff on Writing

From Dmae Lo Roberts | 02:12

Famed Author Ursula K. Le Guin talks about the art of writing.

Leguin28761602_small Ursula K. LeGuin is perhaps best known for her brilliant works of fantasy, science and utopian fictions. Over the past 50 years she’s published 20 novels (including Earth Sea Trilogies, The Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossessed), 11 children’s books, more than a hundred short stories, and has received the national book award, five Hugos, five Nebulas, the Kafka award, a Pushcart prize, and several lifetime achievement awards. This is a debut piece. Never aired. Two minute-module of Ursula K. Le Guin's thoughts about storytelling and the art of writing with a blues riff underscoring her words. This would work well with a music program or as a drop-in or within an arts magazine. Original music by Clark Salisbury.
