Stoking the Fire: Maintaining the Passion for Writing When Success Eludes

Friday, February 28, 9:00am

Room 101, Western New England MFA Annex, Level 1

This panel features four writers, including Fiction Editor Joe Ponepinto, who have created writing lives and have maintained their artistic focus while dealing with rejection, lack of community, post-MFA depression, all while juggling responsibilities of family and day jobs.

Chat Session:

Accessibility, approachability, and openness are key components of our philosophy at TLR, and as such, we invite writers to come chat with us. Have questions about our business model? Want to talk about payment for writers in the literary publishing world? Want to talk aesthetics? Just want to say hi? Meet Joe and Kelly in the Sheraton’s Daily Grill Bar at 4:30 on Friday, February 28.
