The webinar will include Ron Rash, author of the 2009 PEN/Faulkner Finalist and New York Times bestselling novel Serena.
The session will start with a presentation by Jim Melvin, a writer for PSA communications at Clemson University. Melvin has written six published novels — an adult epic fantasy series titled The Death Wizard Chronicles — and three other novels that are currently agent-represented. Melvin was a longtime journalist at three major newspapers before joining Clemson in January 2015.
Melvin will lead a Q&A session that will feature Rash, an internationally renowned prize-winning author who also has written four prize-winning novels — The Cove, One Foot in Eden, Saints at the River, and The World Made Straight. In addition, Rash has written four collections of poems and six collections of stories, among them Burning Bright, which won the 2010 Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award; and Chemistry and Other Stories, which was a finalist for the 2007 PEN/Faulkner Award. Twice the recipient of the O. Henry Prize, Rash teaches at Western Carolina University.
We hope you will join us with your questions.
