Stephen King offers writing tips to US students
LOWELL, Massachusetts (AP) - Stephen King loves scaring people, but one student at University of Massachusetts Lowell tried to find out on Friday what scares him.
"Spiders, snakes... my mother-in-law," the writer said with a grin.
The author of international bestselling books including Carrie and The Shining came to the college to talk with writing students.
English Department professor Andre Dubus III, another bestselling author and an old friend of King's, shared the stage for about an hour as students asked questions about their craft.
