Join us for a bang-up celebration to conclude October's Write Across Chicago activities and to recognize all our many citizen-writers. After meeting and greeting in a "pre-ception," people will get to hear samples of each other's writing in small groups. Then a panel consisting of a student, a teacher, a published writer, an editor, and an appellate judge will discuss the topic, Ways Writing Can Connect People Across Chicago Neighborhoods and Cultures.
This event is a part of the Illinois Writing Project's Write Across Chicago program.
Registration is requested. Please register in advance so organizers can better plan an enjoyable evening of events.
