Garrison Keillor Talks about Writing

On Thursday, April 3, 2008, Garrison Keillor participated  at the University of Dayton'sl Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop. He was there for a whole hour answering questions about writing. I just found a few snippets of that evening's event on YouTube. He gives some great advice about writing, writing humor, choosing genres, etc. The beautiful thing is that Keillor teaches writing at the University of Minnesota. This is almost as if you are present at one of his lectures. Enjoy.
