An interactive series of readings and discussions about what it means to build a literary life, the festival featured some of the Creative Writing Program's most successful recent alumni, all of whom read from their work, participated in an "Inside the Writer's Studio" live interview, and led our explorations in a Literary Citizenship Symposium with area high school students, community members, and college students.
