Paul J. Willis traces his path through different writing genres to poetry and looks at the examples of well-known writers who also ended up writing different material than they set out to write, including C.S. Lewis, Shakespeare, and Robert Browning.
Paul is a professor of English at Westmont College and a former poet laureate of Santa Barbara, California. He recently served as an artist-in-residence in North Cascades National Park in Washington State.
This is the fifth of a seven-part evening.
