North Words Panel Topics
2020 North Words Panel Topics
Special Theme: Writing at a time of a threatened natural world.
Writing while the world burns:
How to stand witness to challenges, change, and turmoil. Why do it at all?
Seeing your words in black-and-white:
The shifting dimensions of getting published.
The writer’s role as a source of hope:
From all these urgent, tragic, troubling stories—where is the light?
Making science stick among skeptics:
Data is real, stupid. Or is it? What was the question?
Stitching characters’ lives into a coherent fabric:
The quest to show purpose and place among relationships.
Writing with risk:
Why should you try? What happens if you do?
The performance side:
Your words—live and in person—flung at others.
A final list will be appear on the 2020 schedule this spring, pending faculty assignments. There also will be at least two writing workshops, along with time for one-on-one consultations with faculty.
