Every now and then, you're lucky enough to have a truly exceptional teacher. Tonight, I'd like to introduce you to one of mine.
Jim Shepard was my favorite professor in college. He's a fantastic writer, and as you'll see in the clip below, one hell of a teacher. Doesn't hurt that he's funny.
I know some of you are writers, and to you I must say: buy Jim's books. Read them closely. If you get the chance to see him speak, really listen. And if you ever have the opportunity to study with him, grab it with both hands.
Thanks to WP's college writing professor, Dani Shapiro, for Tweeting this link today.
