About this Event
Join ASU MFA Alumna Elizabyth Hiscox for her talk, Writers within the Ivory Tower, Friday, October 19, 2018 at the Piper Writers House (450 E Tyler Mall, Tempe, AZ 85281) from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
Hiscox’s talk will include stories from the ivory-tower trenches and highlight some of the pitfalls and pleasures of being an artist/academic. From the MFA to the PHD to the search for the teaching gig, how do we remain true to our literary goals and rise to meet the rigors of the institution? Can we? Hiscox will share not only her experience in various creative writing roles (as editor, student, teacher, poet, event coordinator), but include those of others who’ve trod similar ground. A Q&A portion will follow.
While encouraged, RSVPs are purely for the purposes of monitoring attendance, gauging interest, and communicating information about parking, directions, and other aspects of the event.
