Writing the Working Class, with Literary Cleveland
Time & Location
About The Event
Old-fashioned, blue-collar American work is part of our identity in northeast Ohio, where nothing is given, everything is earned, and you work for what you have.
Leading up the Lake County League of Libraries’ event with Jess Walter on August 5th, and providing food for thought as Lake County reads The Cold Millions, Willoughby Eastlake Public Library’s Between the Lines Author Series, in conjunction with Literary Cleveland, is offering a series of two-hour programs with authors whose books explore the idea of American work.
In first hour of each program, from 5:30-6:30 a writing workshop led by Literary Cleveland will invite participants to explore their own relationship with work by creating and developing a piece of original writing. Lit Cleveland will share techniques, lead participants in writing exercises, and inspire you to break through to new levels of creativity and productivity in your writing.
The second hour of each program, from 6:30-7:30, will consist of a conversation with an author whose book connects thematically to The Cold Millions and the subject of work.
Advance registration for the six-part workshop is required to have writing critiqued by the group, but silent auditing or attending a single workshop to observe and seek inspiration is allowed and encouraged!
Registration for author conversations is separate. A complete List can be found at bit.ly/write_work
