In this highly interactive residency, Columbus native, Nancy Kangas comes to Grandview. She aims to engage RLS students in the rambunctious process of writing -- from the often difficult beginnings of trying to pick apart a knot of something intriguing or troubling, through the white-water-rafting thrill of rough draft writing, to the intense play of revision, in which we fatten up, trim down, and turn our work inside out until it rings true. Because she believes exposure to excellent writing gives us inspiration and direction, she shares a wide range of writing, created by young as well as experienced artists.  She wants us all to feel the impact of a metaphor and the necessity of strong imagery.
