George Saunders is one of the undisputed masters of American letters; a novelist, storyteller and essayist whose wisdom and insight have been rewarded with the highest accolades in literature.
In a rare treat for authors and storytellers of all forms, he shares his insights from teaching some of the best young writers in America.
Drawing on the works of Russian masters, and sharing insights from his new book A Swim in a Pond in the Rain, he reminds us that the process of writing is as much a craft as it is a quality of openness and a willingness to see the world through new eyes.
