Comments from Participants:
The excellent writing heard in readings was an inspiration, something to strive after. Rene Steinke’s work especially hit me this way.
I'm not a writer; just a Luther alum who enjoyed this opportunity to be back on campus to learn. While this is certainly a festival for writers, I'm sure there are other Luther alums who would enjoy attending for the fun of listening to the readings and learning more about what goes into what we read.
As an aspiring writer, I found the Festival to be just what I needed to inspire me to keep doing what I'm wanting to do, tips on how to improve in the craft, and a reality check on how difficult it can be.
