Today in Lit 150 we are beginning with this clip from the Todd Solondz film Storytelling. I like Solondz’ films and first saw this at Oregon State. It demonstrates the brutal effect a workshop can have on a young writer:
John Paul Jaramillo’s debut story collection The House of Order was named a 2013 Int’l Latino Book Award Finalist, and his most recent work Little Mocos is now available from Twelve Winters Press. In 2013 Latino Boom: An Anthology of U.S. Latino Literature listed Jaramillo as one of its Top 10 New Latino Authors to Watch and Read. He is currently a professor of composition and literature at Lincoln Land College-Springfield, Illinois.
