AWP Conference Panel, Book Signing and Reading


I will be in Seattle for the AWP Conference, and will be participating in a panel, book signing, and reading.  See the schedule below!

Thursday, February 27
AWP Conference
Washington State Convention Center &
Sheraton Seattle Hotel
Seattle, WA

Participating in the panel: “Writing Toward the Future: High School Creative Writing Programs.” With Monika Cassel, Jamie Figueroa, Anne-Marie Oomen, Scott Gould. Room 2B, Washington State Convention Center, Level 2. 3:00 pm.

As writing programs multiply around the nation, high school writing majors in arts schools are the new frontier. What does such an early emphasis on the craft of writing offer young students during the high school years and beyond? What should a writer hoping to teach at such a program expect? Instructors and program directors of arts school creative writing programs across the country explore what intensive training in creative writing can offer today’s youth and today’s teachers of writing.
