Chris Abani — Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference, Tampa, FL

With:

AWP PROGRAM: “The Worst Writing Advice I Ever Got,” featuring Melissa Stein, Mark Doty, Chris Abani (coeditor of the New-Generation African Poets box sets), Ada Limon, and Hannah Tinti. Bad advice: it’s all over the place. Five intrepid prose writers and poets dish up counterproductive counsel offered by teachers, by friends and family, by other writers, by naysayers and ambition-squashers and status-quo-preservers everywhere (sometimes even in our own heads). We’ll explore how we develop resilience and courage and confidence and voice as writers and, along the way, may just sneak in a wealth of eminently useful, real-world advice.

Program will take place in Ballroom C, Tampa Convention Center, First Floor.
