Florida Writers Conference: Exposure, Embarrassment, and Empathy: What Women Risk When they Write

Friday, February 14, 2014; 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Campus Location: Student Union, Cape Florida Ballroom(316)
Cost: Registered Participants Only

When women unmask their “selves” through their writing, what is gained and what is lost? Four women writers discuss their writing processes, and the possible repercussions and rewards, when they tackle topics such as concepts of beauty, family, sexuality, and equality in the workplace. The panelists will discuss how their writing shifts their views of what can be considered “women’s issues” in their works, their classrooms, and their lives, and provide exercises to explore what is the “women’s voice,” as well as information on where it might be published.
