Post-MFA Lunch Break Session at StoryStudio Writers Festival

  • Columbia College 1104 South Wabash Avenue Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

I’ll be leading a Lunch Break Session at the Second Annual StoryStudio Writers Festival on Sunday, October 6 at 12:45 p.m. The session will be aimed at writers who have earned their MFAs and are now trying to determine how to maintain a connection with the literary community and what to do next. This will be a chance for Post-MFA students to meet one another and discuss resources available to them.
