Topic: “The World And You”
Join us for our next Virtual Roundtable in conjunction with Olympian Creative.
This month, we’ll discuss techniques for weaving your personal story with the public story of your times. Each of us lives in the world and is shaped by its complexities; in turn, we act in the world and help change it in subtle ways. This interaction is a rich vein for creative writing that is at once personal and public. Feel free to bring examples from your favorite authors or from your own work. The Roundtable is an excellent opportunity to discuss both the craft and the deeper themes of creative work in a complex world. Olympian Creative director and UNLV writing professor Greg Blake Miller will host the session. We look forward to seeing you!
