Creative Writers in Nonprofit Careers: Panel Discussion, Reading, and Reception

The panelists will discuss the services their organizations offer, how they began working in nonprofits, what draws them to this work, and the ways in which their employment intersects with their writing and artistic practice. They will also share some of the benefits and challenges of these careers, particularly for artist and writers. The discussion will be followed by a short reading by the panelists and a reception with light refreshments. 

Off-site at Hefter Conference Center, 3271 N. Lake Dr.
