All of us are a complex mix of identities that are, in large part, informed by where we have been—by the people and the places that we come from. Whether we identify as rural, urban, or suburban; as native, immigrant, or exile, we are marked by place and we make a mark on places we live by how we choose to live. This intersection of place and identity is reflected in the language we use and the stories we tell. Through readings and conversation, we will explore this intersection from a variety of angles, while also talking about practical craft matters involved in writing through and about this intersection.
The Watershed Reading Series is supported by Dane Arts with additional funds from the Endres Mfg. Company Foundation, The Evjue Foundation, Inc, charitable arm of The Capital Times, the W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation, and the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation.
