Onward to DC–War Writing at AWP17
In advance of next week’s Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) 2017 conference in Washington, DC, below are pictures I took of contemporary war fiction titles on the shelves of the New Brunswick, NJ, public library. Here is a schedule of events featuring war writers, compiled by Charlie Sherpa. I’ll be moderating a panel titled From Verse to Stage and Screen: Veterans Adapt featuring Brian Turner, Benjamin Busch, Maurice Decaul, and Jenny Pacanowski, and I hope to see you there or at one of the other war writing panels. There are also many off-the-program and after-hours events featuring war writing stalwarts and newcomers, so stay tuned to your social media feeds for details. I’m sensing that the war-lit community really wants to gather, no doubt in response to these troubled times, and that’s how I’m feeling, too. Thanks for reading and writing everybody, support your local library, and see you in DC.
