Creativity and Craft in Asylum
How do themes and style change when a writer is exiled? Who does an exiled writer write for? How do such things as native language, time in exile, and genre impact the writer? Writers will read from their work that caused their exile, then discuss how exile—or the idea of exile—has affected their writing. Founder and director of City of Asylum, Pittsburgh’s refuge for international writers in peril, guides this panel.
