ESR Writing Colloquium to Feature Patricia Raybon

For writers, race is a minefield full of unofficial rules and unwritten expectations. Patricia Raybon will explore this dilemma and discuss how to write stories that transcend racial identity while staying real and relevant to that identity during "Eye of the Beholder," the ESR Writing Colloquium on November 4 and 5 at ESR. She will also suggest that all writers can advance the conversation by writing race as one part of their whole selves. The conference will also feature workshops by David Dark, Marlena Graves, Al Hsu, Shena McAuliffe and Rabbi Sandy Sasso. Visit esr.earlham.edu/WC2016 or call Julie at 765-983-1423.
