*PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT

$25 Students, $40 General

Sponsored by Humanities Montana.

Though we live in a world chock full of chain restaurants and department stores, on-screen communications, and cross-country airplane travel, we ignore the power of place at our own psychological and, increasingly, physical peril. Truly, place and landscape are active forces in all our lives. They shape and re-shape us; they offer us foundation and refuge; they challenge us to be good citizens of our biotic and built communities. In life and in writing, we ought to be aware of this; we ought to try to understand and harness the power of place. This session offers writers four ways they might begin to do just that. Participants are asked to bring a pen and paper or a laptop computer for in-session writing.

$25 for Students, $40 for General Public
Registration for this event will open August 25 at montanabookfestival.org

Includes Pulitzer Poets Natasha Trethewey and Philip Levine.
