Manuscript Quotations

I became a connoisseur of that nasty thud a manuscript makes when it comes through the letter box.
James Herriot

Terry Pratchett

I teach one semester a year, and this year I'm just teaching one course during that semester, a writing workshop for older students in their late 20s and early 30s, people in our graduate program who are already working on a manuscript and trying to bring it to completion.
Tobias Wolff
