What does it mean to be in a state of exile (literally or metaphorically)? Must longing be part of exile or can exile exist without longing? This virtual panel will consist of creative writers who will read their work (creative non-fiction, fiction, and poetry) and in which they explore what home can mean. Work may either be published or works-in-progress.
