"Natalia's visit to our class was illuminating, insightful, and most of all generous. Her fiction is already so alive on the page, and she brought it even further to life for us while helping us think through the depths of our own writing. Natalia is a luminous presence and a masterful practitioner. Her visit made me believe in everything writing can do."

— Dennis Sweeney, lecturer, Amherst College
