America’s Wonders in 3D with the Utah Symphony

How do creative writers find ways to embody the voices of their characters? How do we write to release them into the bodies of readers and performers? UVU writer-professors discuss their fiction, poetry, and performance as they create characters who speak and live beyond their makers.
