I wonder if there will be improvements and more freedom (more fun too) with the new Festival director. I hope those journalism students will be back with their festival news and more.

Hi Adam,
Who knows ?
Chip Rolley IS very active in PEN - but everyone's a member of PEN, doesn't really mean MORE freedom (what a concept - 'more' freedom).

There's always THE COMMITTEE, or whatever they call it at the writers circus, to fend off.

A lacklustre kind of event isn't it ? You'd think they'd welcome, even encourage some students' critique !

Pam
