Professor David Starkey teaches writing at Santa Barbara City College

Our talented friend David Starkey literally wrote the book on creative writing, and describes how distance learning may have helped students become more reflective readers. We talk to him about the ways writing can help students become more thoughtful readers,  the philosophies that shape his bestselling textbooks, and how to join him in Rome for a semester abroad.
