FREE EVENT on 1/4/19: “How to Use Diverse Writing as a Form of Resistance and How to Claim Your Own Authentic Experience” with Kosoko Jackson
Though 2018 is almost over, WriteOnCon 2019 is still a little while away (February 8-10, 2019). However, we are excited to announce that we will have some special public live events in the weeks leading up to the big weekend!
These special events will run just like our other live events: they’ll be live Q&As on set topics, with questions coming straight from our audience members. But unlike our February events, these are completely FREE to the public. So you can attend and ask our speakers questions even if you haven’t purchased admission to the main conference—though if you like what you see, we encourage you to register!
Our first event will be held on January 4, 2019 at 10AM EST. Kosoko Jackson, author of A Place for Wolves and advocate for diversity in YA literature, will answer your questions on “How to Use Diverse Writing as a Form of Resistance and How to Claim Your Own Authentic Experience.”
The event will take place at this link. The streaming video will go live at the scheduled event time, but you’re invited to pop in early to leave your questions for Kosoko in the comments section. A WriteOnCon.org account is required to leave comments, but they’re free to make. We look forward to seeing you there!
More events to come! Watch this space for details on our next speakers and topics.
Until then, Happy New Year from the WriteOnCon team!
