The WSN Writers Roundtables launched over a discussion about the ethics of celebrity journalism, specifically the Rolling Stone Sean Penn/El Chapo article and the ethics of secrecy when interviewing a criminal. It evolved into a lively discussion about the trend towards celebrity journalism in general … and the Roundtable was formed.
WSN’s first Writers Roundtable, Tuesday March 1, 2016 at The Coffee Press
Our official inaugral roundtable happened on Tuesday March 1, 2016 and was led by UNLV professor and new WSN Board Member Greg Blake Miller. It evolved into a spirited discussion about using personal travel experiences and emotional memory in our writing. We closed the joint and the conversation spilled into the parking lot. The same thing has happened every time so far. So stop by and talk about writing with other writers this next time!
