Writer’s Life Talks

During these talks, Creative Writing Instructors will share brief readings of their own work, address common questions about being a writer and the process of writing, demystify the writing process, and give solid advice and tips. They will feature insights to the instructor’s writing inspiration, generative prompts, revision strategies, and even advice about publishing. It’s also an opportunity for participants to get to know the CWIs that are not leading their Writing Lab. There will be three of these live one-hour talks, also made available to participants as a recording 48hrs after they occur. 

Writer's Life Talks are offered in the winter program, and in the summer are included in: The Full Program, Package #1 and Package #2
