This episode of podmissum features Laura Glesby ’17. Born and raised in New York City, Laura provides insight into the creative process from the perspective of a young writer. An avid reader from an early age, Laura discovered she could read in preschool, an accomplishment that separated her from most of her peers at the time. This discovery transformed her budding educational experience and shaped an identity strongly informed by books, and eventually, by writing. Wishing to take on a more structured approach to the craft, Laura enrolled in classes in the non-profit organization Writopia Lab, considered to be one of the premier programs in New York City for writers between the ages of six and eighteen. It is at Writopia that she continues to hone her writing skills and develop her creative process under the tutelage of published authors and a community of young writers. The conversation with Laura took place at Trinity in the autumn of 2015.
