"The Muse Upon Their Shoulders: The Lives of Modern Writing Couples"
In this talk, Rick and Susan will discuss their writing processes, and how each has gone about developing the work in their most recent books. In addition, they will field questions concerning the novel versus the short story form and lyric poetry. Finally, these "scribbling spouses" will talk candidly about how two writers live and create beneath the same roof.
Richard Mulkey is the author of five poetry collections, including most recently, Ravenous: New & Selected Poems, Toward Any Darkness, Bluefield Breakdown, and Before the Age of Reason. Rick has taught at universities and writing workshops in the United States and Europe, and he currently directs the low residency MFA program in Creative Writing at Converse College.
Susan Tekulve is the author of In the Garden of Stone, winner of the 2012 South Carolina First Novel Award and a 2014 Gold IPPY Award as the best novel published in the South by an independent press. She's also published three short story collections: Savage Pilgrims, Wash Day and My Mother's War Stories. An Associate Professor of English, she teaches in the BFA and MFA in creative writing programs at Converse College.
