There are three things that Julia Whitehead, founder and CEO of the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library, hopes writers will learn from studying Vonnegut's work: 1) Vonnegut started as a journalist, so his writing is very clear with some personal narrative intertwined. It's an unusual style that has attributed to his success. 2) He explored all types of writing and did not limit himself, so don't be afraid to try something new. 3) Vonnegut often talked about how being an "Indiana boy" influenced his writing. Write from where you are versus trying to be someone you aren't. Who you are is good enough, and interesting enough.
