A Discussion Session -

IN THESE TIMES:

WRITING. TERROR. POSSIBILITY.

Alexis De Veaux  Moderator

This public conversation sponsored by the Hobart Women Writers Festival that invites festival participants and the broader community to think together about a series of questions, specifically-what does it mean to be a writer in these times? What are “these times” to and for us as writers?

 

Are they different given our particular identifications/localities/literary genres? What is “the news”/what are the issues occupying our writings today? How are we expressing a practice of language in our writing? Are we drawing on the language practices of writers who’ve come before us/who are contemporaries? Is the idea of “possibility” evidenced in our work?
