This Week's Featured Work

May 25th--Today's featured piece is: "A Conversation With Jill Talbot" where Non-fiction Editor, Kelsey Ahlmark, discusses everything from the Texas author's writing and parents, to first love and favorite Stevie Nick's song. Talbot was one of five writers who participated in the Emerging Writers Festival here at USF in April and we are grateful for her taking the time to chat with Kelsey.
