Elizabeth Dodd, university distinguished professor of English, served as a member of the conference faculty at the Kachemak Bay Writers' Conference in Homer, Alaska, June 8-12.

This nationally recognized writing conference features workshops, readings and panel presentations in fiction, poetry, nonfiction and the business of writing.

As a member of the conference faculty, Dodd made three presentations on topics connected to the craft of writing: "Home Grounding," "Implication and Exposition: Getting Beyond 'Show Don't Tell,'" and "'Truth' in Memoir."

Dodd also read from her own work and assisted conference participants with their writing.
