This week the Troublesome Boys were joined via Zoom with Appalachian author, Silas House to discuss the upcoming 44th Annual Appalachian Writer's Workshop at the Hindman Settlement School. We discussed his "origin story" with the Workshop and what it has been to him and his writing career and what the Workshop has done for the Appalachian Writer's Community. He also shared with us his advice for Writer's attending this years workshop and fills us in on all the details of this year's workshop.
