Hangin' with KCC

After a previous visit to the KCC campus where I discussed my writing and it's influences to a general audience, I was approached by Porsha (instructor) to speak to her class about writing. "Of course" was my reply, thinking the format would be similar I read a little, I talk a little- it's all good. This class however, was a little more daunting. While I do not have a career in education or public speaking, I have done several class discussions about writing and my influences which gave me a false sense of security. Upon arrival to class, I was led to a seat in the middle of a semi circle of students to begin my talk. Talk I did- I read some of my old work, some new work, fielded questions and asked some of my own. As this class though was not focused on writing per say, rather reading local works, I was not sure if I contributed to their knowledge base. I left feeling ok- but not sure of any impact and am interested in feedback from the group. What as your experience? Would a more focused approach to a certain aspect of writing, or of it's influences been more beneficial or has this free flowing form of discussion enriched your education of local literature? What is your opinion of local literature?
