This weekend: Poets & Writers LIVE at the Blanton Museum

This Saturday, January 9, 2016, Poets & Writers magazine will present a celebration of creativity at the Blanton Museum of Art. The magazine’s editors will be joined by authors (many of them local) for a series of lectures, workshops and multimedia presentations “exploring the literary imagination, innovation on the page, writing in multiple genres, and uncommon sources of inspiration.” This is a great opportunity to gather advice on publishing and connect with other authors.
