Event details

High school students, the public, and university students will have the opportunity to learn from the masters at WritersFest, a literary festival planned by Pittsburg State University’s Creative Writing Program in March, with workshops and readings by noted authors. 

The festival will continue with a presentation on writing poetry by Mirriam-Goldberg at. It is open to the public.
