Louise Erdrich

I may have shared this video before. But today I’m talking about Louise Erdrich’s “The Red Convertible” with my American literature students, and yesterday afternoon I had a conversation with a friend about how women get writing done. Erdrich, who has five children, offers some poetic advice. It’s a good one to mark as a favorite and watch whenever you need encouragement.

It’s from Bill Moyer’s Journal, the post is dated April 9, 2010.

  1. I love Erdrich’s advice about how to get the writing done! Thanks for the link; I hadn’t known about the Bill Moyer interview with her. It’s wonderful to hear her words in her voice.
