During the 1950s Still gained the reputation of being a hermit, but he established close, long-lasting friendships with nearby families, especially Monroe Amburgey and his children. And people sought him out. At the invitation of James McConkey, Still joined the staff of the Morehead State College writers workshop in summer 1952 and continued to participate even after Albert Stewart became the director in 1957. Still granted an interview to the young reporter, Gurney Norman in 1958. He also strengthened his connections with Hindman and returned there to work as a librarian.
