Dorothy Allison on Writing at Centrum

Dorothy Allison

Dorothy Allison was on faculty at Port Townsend Writers’ Conference this past July. In between sessions, she generously took time out to talk about what makes the Conference such a compelling experience for writers.

Dorothy also discussed how writers think of the practice of writing:

“Make it the place you go for pleasure, vindication, for putting your people on the page. If you can create that joy in the work, everything else falls in place behind it.”
