Nancy Welch speaks of writing, activism and keying into the voice that inspires

UVM professor and prose writer Nancy Welch joined us in the studio on March 18 to talk about the state of student activism and to read her short story, “Havazik.”

Listen to the show.

Read her story.

Welch’s short stories have appeared in Prairie Schooner, Greensboro Review, Threepenny Review and elsewhere, and her collection of stories, The Road from Prosperity, was published by Southern Methodist University Press.

Her latest book, Living Room: Teaching Public Writing in a Privatized World, is a series of essays on the struggle for public writing and public voice in an era of corporate privatization.

She is a professor in the UVM Department of English where she has taught classes in nonfiction and fiction writing, rhetorical theory, and literacy politics for the past 15 years.
