Writers Symposium By the Sea
February 20, 2018 - February 23, 2018
Writer’s Symposium by the Sea is an annual event that brings interviews with innovative creators, life stories, examples of great writing, and evocative conversation to PLNU that inspire readers and writers alike. Past guests have included Ray Bradbury, Anne Lamott, Philip Yancey, Dave Eggers, Amy Tan, Bill McKibben, Donald Miller, George Plimpton, and many more.
The next Writer’s Symposium by the Sea event will take place on the following dates:
February 20, 2018 – Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley (A Thousand Acres)
February 21, 2018 – Peabody Award winner Krista Tippett (Becoming Wise), host of the podcast “On Being”
February 23, 2018 – PLNU Alum Justin Skeesuck and co-author Patrick Gray (I’ll Push You)
The evening interviews, conducted by symposium founder Dr. Dean Nelson, feature lively conversations about the stories behind the author’s stories. As a member of the audience, you will get to eavesdrop on these exchanges and perhaps even interact with the writer during a Q&A session. Specialized afternoon workshops, conducted by published writers, provide tips and insight into the writing process. You are invited to join us and listen in on what some of today’s cutting-edge writers have to say!
