Voices celebrates stories of the Fiction Writing program community. Here you will find a wide variety of audio and video clips of readings and performances of students, faculty, visiting writers, friends of the program, and alums.

We dedicate our Voices page to Robyn Eastman—alumna, colleague and friend of the Fiction Writing program. Robyn brought her enthusiasm, wisdom, grace, and sense of humor to her work that always imagined a better world.

If you have a clip you would like to submit for consideration to the Voices page please contact Gary Johnson.
