John and Peg Knoepfle visited D’s lit class and we put together this video. A conversation with John and Peg was in part why I put together this failed writing blog. They were the writers who told me to expect failure in writing and submitting. They were the ones who told me to write and be patient. I particularly like how Peg observes how in her writing ‘the world is a poem.’
