I would like to put together an Association of Writers and Writing Programs panel. I am unsure about the topic. The first panel I am putting together this year is for the 10th anniversary of my Anaphora Literary Press, a reading for some of the writers. I would like to put together a second panel with folks that I am not affiliated with, so anybody reading this post. The panel can be a reading, or a discussion on the profession, or a discussion on the writing craft. Maybe a panel of independent publishers to discuss the problems we face in this field. Maybe a panel of academics (I previously taught college English for over 4 years) to talk about teaching creative/writing.
