Cornell Dept. of English / Creative Writing Program presents In A Word with J. Robert Lennon
“Some Important Third People”
In our age of memoir, social media, and young adult fiction, first person rules the roost. This talk will argue that first person is often misused in American fiction, and that a good writer should always consider third, in all its complex, ungainly glory. Professor Lennon will give examples from literature of third person’s flexibility, and show writers how to use it.
In A Word is a new series that showcases the Creative Writing Program’s significant influences and contributions to the literary world by its dedicated faculty of poets and fiction writers like J. Robert Lennon. The author of eight novels, including Mailman, Familiar, and Broken River, and the story collections Pieces for the Left Hand and See You in Paradise, you can find out more about him at jrobertlennon.com.
