Please join Poets & Writers, the nation's largest nonprofit organization serving creative writers, for the next Santa Monica Literary Roundtable Meeting at the Camera Obscura Art Lab!
This free, informal meeting is a great way to connect with fellow presenters, presses, teachers, and writers. Roundtable Meetings bring together people from all areas of the literary community to exchange ideas, news, and resources. It's also a chance to learn about P&W and their Readings & Workshops program for literary events. Notes from past roundtable meetings are publicly available online (http://at.pw.org/2Bdmwfg).
We are pleased to welcome Annenberg Community Beach House Writer-in-Residence Wally Rudolph as our special guest. Rudolph, a multidisciplinary artist and diversity advocate, is the author of two novels, Four Corners (Counterpoint/Soft Skull, 2014) and MIGHTY, MIGHTY (Counterpoint/Soft Skull, 2015). He’ll talk about his journey as a writer, diversity and inclusion in the literary sphere, and his plans and projects as Writer-in-Residence. Please RSVP here or to [email protected] to reserve your seat, and feel free to share this event information with your networks.
Poets & Writers is the primary source of information, support, and guidance for creative writers. Learn more at pw.org. Literary Roundtables are supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency. Learn more at www.arts.ca.gov.
