You may not have known that award-winning Kentucky writer Maurice Manning has been the Kentucky Arts Council's featured artist. The spot on the arts council homepage usually reserved for the featured artist has been used to communicate valuable COVID-19 related resources for artists and arts organizations throughout the pandemic. But we wanted to put Maurice out front and center in a meaningful way, so we're giving you this chance to learn more about him on this episode. Arts council staff member Tamara Coffey spends time chatting with Maurice about what he's been up to during self-isolation, who his influences are and asks him to share some of his work with the audience.
