InDigest 1207 was started to further the mission of InDigest: to create a dialogue about the arts, through the arts. By having authors speak to or read from another author who has influenced them–positively or negatively–we hope to show that the process of writing (and reading) is not done in a vacuum, but is an interactive process.
