Browning Porter has been writing poetry since he can remember, and long been involved in the literary culture of Charlottesville,  attending first UVA,  and then the Warren Wilson low residency MFA program.  Finding himself gravitating to a more direct connection between writer and audience, Browning spoke about his love of  storytelling and of the rewards of presenting your writing to a live audience, keeping the framework of the story but allowing a certain flexibility in the movement,  and  incorporating a  component of improvisation.

Browning discussed the challenges of condensing the language for a 3 minute radio show  which he shared, to the delight of the group.

We appreciated the new perspectives in writing and the chance to hear it in action.
