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 2019 Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference will include panel discussions with its faculty members on “Crafting a Writing Life” and “Continuing the Craft.”
Conference faculty members 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.
On Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., Julie Iromuanya and Matthew Olzmann will give a reading from their fiction and poetry.
On Thursday, July 18, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., Lindsay Lusby and Julie Marie Wade will give a reading from their poetry & creative nonfiction.
