Finding Your Medium
Oct 21 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

What’s your medium? Every writer searches for the right format to tell their own stories in. During this interactive discussion, talk with a working poet, playwright, screenwriter, novelist, and more about the challenges and benefits of their chosen medium, how they got there, and how to find your own voice as a writer.

Finding Your Medium will begin with an interactive panel discussion, providing each writer a chance to talk about how they arrived at their chosen medium, if they’ve worked in any other formats, and how their journey affected their current work and perspective on their medium. Then the audience will be invited to bring their own questions to the table–be as general or specific as you like. Trying to find your own medium? Considering testing out another? Wondering how trying out one format might make you a better writer in another? Take advantage of having writers of different paths ready to discuss the ins and outs of their medium–and yours!
