We live in a world of restaurants, stores, and long-distance travel…and yet, we ignore the power of place, and how it shapes us. This has become a psychological and, increasingly, physical peril. In life and in writing, we need to understand and harness the power of place.
A teacher at Linfield College, Joe Wilkins’ works have won the Oregon Book Award, High Plains Book Award, GLCA New Writers Award, and the Pushcart Prize. In this conversation, he will offer writers four ways to utilize the power of place in our writing.
Conversations With Writers invites authors to read and tell us about their work and their writing methods. Not just a reading, but an event for audience members to interact and ask questions about word choices, styles, or the writer’s development of his / her art. It’s an informal atmosphere to help us all better understand the craft of writing. For more information, visit: cwwor.weebly.com
