Ann Hood — Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference, Tampa, FL

With:

AWP PROGRAM: “Real Writers, Real Parents: Literary Adventures in Adoptive Parenting,” with Janice Eidus, Ann Hood (editor of Providence Noir), Joanna Sit, Ernesto Mestre-Reed, and Donna Baier Stein. Five diverse writers read poems, essays, and fiction that challenge old views of adoptive parenting, once shrouded in secrecy and shame, now on the cutting edge of contemporary dialogues about race, gender, sexuality, class, identity, ethics, and more. Panelists will explore their unique joys and challenges, how they balance artistic integrity with their children’s privacy, the intersection of their work with the larger landscape of “parenting writing,” and their hopes for the future.

Program will take place in Grand Salon A, Marriott Waterside, Second Floor.
