Chris Offutt has written 3 short story collections, a novel, and 2 memoirs. He is an Associate Professor of English and Screenwriting at the University of Mississippi. He also has written for True Blood on HBO and Weeds on Showtime. He was kind enough to let us know what he believes about censorship.
Censorship is a desperate act made by people who fear their authority is unwarranted, their morality invalid, and their intelligence compromised. Censorship is the weapon of cowards.
Thank you so much, Chris!
