American author, educator Merrill visits Yekaterinburg
Merrill, the founder and director of the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa, also spoke at the U.S. writer’s residencies program for “Semi-Open Mondays,” a lecture series at the National Center for Contemporary Art. During his speech, he explained how writers from around the world interact when they participate in residencies at the University of Iowa.
Merrill also discussed literary works and masters programs, the uniqueness of literary translation and collaborative writing, the impact Russian and American literature have on one another, and writer's block.
Students from the Ural State Pedagogical University’s Foreign Language Institute asked Merrill countless questions.
