Revival of the Literary Salon with the Cambridge Writers’ Workshop Panel
AWP 2013 Conference 9 am, Hynes Convention Center Room 202, Boston
How do writers create viable writing communities outside of the MFA paradigm? We will explore how the revival of salon culture has created new spaces for literary communities and debates. Having opened its Brooklyn studio in 2011, the Cambridge Writers’ Workshop holds writing workshops, literary cabarets, residencies, and retreats abroad. Panelists will discuss how new local and international literary salons help create viable communities of artists and push the conversation of cutting edge art.
