Each summer, Kenyon College plays host to hundreds of writers, young and old, who come to our bucolic hill in rural Ohio for the annual Kenyon Review Writers Workshops.

This year, we asked some of the instructors of the adult writers workshops and their Peter Taylor fellows to have free-ranging conversations about life and craft in our recording studio. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing those conversations with you.

For our first installment, our friend Maggie Smith talks to Ohio native, poet, biographer, and writer of nonfiction, Stanley Plumly.
