Sat 9/14 2pm-6pm
Writers' Day is an opportunity to hear from and talk to some of the area's most accomplished authors and publishers, as well as representatives of graduate writing programs from across the state.
Leading poets and fiction writers will talk about the reasons they started writing and the lessons and experiences that have been most important to their growth. Influential publishers will explain their priorities and processes making editorial decisions. And both representatives and recent graduates of MFA programs will answer questions about the advantages (and potential downsides) to pursuing a graduate degree in creative writing.
Among the featured writers will be Haven Kimmel, Dorianne Laux, Joseph Millar, Alan Shapiro and Daniel Wallace. Everything is free, and we'll be gathering for drinks and conversation with many of the panelists at Lucha Tigre afterward. Join us Saturday, September 14, at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill for any and all of the conversations you want to hear. Each discussion will include time for questions from the audience.
