Faculty mentor: Michael Gills
Artist’s Statement: Hi all. I am Nicholas Goudsmit, member of Michael Gills’ novel writing workshop at the University of Utah, author, and English B.A student. My literary interests, both read and written, are in narrative and historical fiction. I am reading an excerpt from my manuscript entitled Margou, a fictionalized family history. The excerpt sees a character called The Dutchman arrive in America, the southern coast of Martha’s Vineyard, to find a young woman named Margou rather than his wife, Charlotte. The Dutchman and his five-year-old son, Thom, unexpectedly meet Margou for the first time.
