Learning from Louise Erdrich’s Love Medicine

What my well-worn copy looks like. 

In 2011, I was on an AWP panel on Linked Stories with Anne Sanow, Cliff Garstang, and Dylan Landis. To prepare her thoughts, Dylan Landis wrote a blog post about Louise Erdrich’s Love Medicine, a book that taught her much about the form. 

Me, too.

I’m really happy she expanded and published those thoughts in TriQuarterly Online so that others can learn from her efforts. It’s called “Paper Chains and Lace: Lessons on Linked Stories from Love Medicine.” 

Whether you’re writing linked stories or trying to teach your students to write them, this is a fabulous read.
