R150. There and Back Again: Writing from the Road. (Erika Krouse, Kai Carlson-Wee, Kim Barnes, Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum, Maggie Shipstead) Five established and emerging writers who work in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction discuss each of their unique journeys in the world. These travels include train-hopping across the US, marches in Ferguson and Baltimore, the Amtrak Writing Residency, and the Arctic Circle Residency. Panelists address how these endeavors changed their writing in ways they did not expect, including personal research, craft development, and discoveries of larger environmental, social, and racial truths.
