November 14-November 17, 2019, Wyndham San Diego Bayside Hotel, San Diego, California

Delving into identity to find one’s place in an expansive universe is natural in writing. In addition, examining and grappling with our personal and inherited histories can also aid the writer in liberation. Creative writers will share work in which they navigate and translate identity in a modern era.

This panel is of interest to both readers of creative writing and creative writers because the panelists will illustrate how their many selves are braided into their writing. They demonstrate how this long tradition of meditations on identity have evolved and how these explorations can help one see clearer who they are in regards to their personal and inherited histories. This panel welcomes creative writers from diverse backgrounds.
