The Writing Show has moved online!
No matter how much we’d like to separate the art from the artist, all works are infused by their creators’ points of view. Our panelists discuss how every writer’s voice, lived experience, and place in the world affects creative output for better or worse. Learn how writers can lean into their own perspective and use it to their advantage.
Date: Wednesday, April 29, 2020
Time: 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Location: Online, in the comfort of your own home. Via the Zoom Platform
Price: $10 – Members; $12 Non-members ($5 for students)
Registration closes on April 27; your unique link to join the online Zoom program will be emailed to you the day before the Writing Show begins
All participants must register online to ensure you receive the link to the Zoom platform. This includes all-inclusive members, Writing Show members, and individual members wishing to use one of their free passes.
