About this Event

The Seahawk Writing Conference is filled with generative workshops and conversations. There will be sessions, hosted by BC faculty, where participants will learn from the facilitators a specific aspect of writing. Each facilitator will lead participants through readings, writing exercises, and the opportunity to receive peer feedback on their work in progress. Then everyone will reconvene for lunch and a Craft Talk, where Julie Marie Wade, an award-winning author, will talk about the lyric essay. The last session will be a Reading + Happy Hour where BC faculty, staff, and workshop participants will share their writings.
