I’m one of countless former students whose career has been helped tremendously by Fred’s generosity and initiative. His was the first workshop I took at UNCG, in 1974, an unforgettable spring semester for many reasons and especially for the friends I met there, including Tim Tarkington, John Gray, Mark Smith Soto, and Mary LeDonne.
