    A Reading & Panel Discussion with the PVWW Year-Long Program Faculty

    It's maybe the question everyone embarking on a book-length project asks at some point in the process: How do you keep going? How is it humanly possible to sustain a project of this length over years? How do books get finished? There is no easy answer to this, and no one path toward book-completion, but something we know for sure can help with the challenges of sustaining lengthy projects is community around them, as well as learning about what's helped others, and an openness to experimentation. This panel brings together some of the PVWW Year-Long Manuscript Program faculty for short readings from their current longform work, followed by discussion on the challenges of putting together a book-length manuscript as well as strategies and approaches that have worked for them. They will draw on their own experiences as well as their experiences leading a cohort of writers through the process of book-creation, over the course of a year. There will be lots of opportunities for questions and comments from the audience, and we hope this becomes a lively discussion with lots of involvement from all who wish to participate in the discussion. Moderated by Joy Baglio.

    Add to Calendar 2022/11/06 15:00:00 2022/11/06 16:00:00 America/New_York The Craft & Process of Book-Length Projects A Reading & Panel Discussion with the PVWW Year-Long Program Faculty

    It's maybe the question everyone embarking on a book-length project asks at some point in the process: How do you keep going? How is it humanly possible to sustain a project of this length over years? How do books get finished? There is no easy answer to this, and no one path toward book-completion, but something we know for sure can help with the challenges of sustaining lengthy projects is community around them, as well as learning about what's helped others, and an openness to experimentation. This panel brings together some of the PVWW Year-Long Manuscript Program faculty for short readings from their current longform work, followed by discussion on the challenges of putting together a book-length manuscript as well as strategies and approaches that have worked for them. They will draw on their own experiences as well as their experiences leading a cohort of writers through the process of book-creation, over the course of a year. There will be lots of opportunities for questions and comments from the audience, and we hope this becomes a lively discussion with lots of involvement from all who wish to participate in the discussion. Moderated by Joy Baglio.
