Craft Panels & Readings
Nearly every moment of the Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference is designed to teach you something new about writing. In craft panels, faculty will present particular literary devices or strategies that they use when drafting poetry and prose. Faculty readings will allow you to hear how professional writers present their work, how writing has a life beyond the page, how today’s authors must also learn to engage with an audience, answering questions, signing books, and developing a readership.
The 2017 Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference includes panel discussions with faculty members James Allen Hall, Leslie Harrison, Julie Iromuanya, and Julie Marie Wade on “Crafting a Writing Life” and “Continuing the Craft.”
Faculty members Hall, Harrison, Iromuanya, and Wade will also take part in two nights of faculty readings, during which they will read from their own creative work. The faculty readings are also free and open to the public.
Leslie Harrison & Julie Iromuanya will read from their work on Wednesday, July 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose O’Neill Literary House.
James Allen Hall & Julie Marie Wade will read from their work on Thursday, July, 13 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose O’Neill Literary House.
