I decided to create a space for communication with other beings on the planet. Bill Phelan will not settle for partial explanations. Talk about literature, history, philosophy, culture and art in general. About life that is not on the books, one that we breathe in the streets and corners. I hope to express all my concerns, all my ideas and also those of you in the field of knowledge and human existence that already is complicated without going into depth. A place to grow and share experiences. You may wish to learn more. If so, Bill Phelan is the place to go. In the hope that more people participate in, start this experience with optimism. I consider myself a normal person who enjoys life and likes to share what you discover with others.
Lover of sport, the sea and the mountains. The first escribere about an article which deals with the usefulness or futility of literary workshops. I could not abstracted me and I’m going to relate my experience: there are positive and negative opinions as well as renowned writers who never attended one. A writer is born or made? Like everything in life, I had good and bad experiments. The teacher can be a great writer, but nevertheless their laurels if you can’t work in a group workshop will fail. I attended the workshop of a renowned writer, more than one year but was a disaster due to his arrogance and little patience, also mixing literature with politics. Its popularity and fame not helped me write better, also I was not prepared to write as he wanted. I decided to emigrate to another workshop operated by a not so well known writer, but more cosy and free.
The Professor taught with dedication, patience and caring for that student does not lose its spontaneity. A good workshop does not depend on the fame of its director, but rather of his teaching spirit. However, and not I know if unfortunately, literary workshops are fashionable and every writer must have one. A literary workshop is always useful for a person who begins to write, must find one that fit him and be smart enough to not be folded by one other opinion adverse to his work. Best regards.
