AWP panel The Thing Builders: Building Literary Communities that Matter

AWP S109. The Thing Builders: Building Literary Communities That Matter  Location Tampa, Florida, Grand Salon B, Marriott Waterside, Second Floor  Saturday, March 10, 2018 9:00 am to 10:15 am  

Moderator: Penny Guisinger along with panelists JP Howard, Amanda Johnston, andJanna Marlies Maron

Building a literary thing takes more than money. It takes vision, determination, and faith that, somehow, it will be worth it. Conferences, courses, publications, and socio-political movements are opportunities for writers to find each other, share and improve skills, and create social change. As “thing-builders” who are supporting their own careers while supporting other writers, panelists will share how and why they do it in this time of almost limitless competition and scarce resources.
