THE WRITER’S JOURNEY: ADVICE & INSPIRATION FROM SUMMER WORDS ALUMNI | Aspen Summer Words Virtual
Every writer’s journey looks a little bit different. Some are practically born with a pen and paper in hand, while others turn to writing after a career in an entirely different field. Many attend MFA programs; others hone their skills through journalism, blogging or clandestine diary writing. There’s no single path, no silver bullet. This panel brings together star alumni from the Aspen Summer Words program to discuss their writing and publishing journeys, provide advice for students as they launch into a writers conference, and share their new books/projects.

Moderator:
CAROLINE TORY, Aspen Words  managing director

Panelists:
STEPHANIE DANLER, author of best-selling novel “Bittersweet” and the new memoir “Stray”

TRAPETA MAYSON, Philadelphia’s 2020-2021 poet laureate, performer and teaching artist

C. PAM ZHANG, author of the new novel “How Much of These Hills is Gold” 

EILENE ZIMMERMAN, journalist and author of the new memoir “Smacked: A Story of White Collar Ambition, Addiction and Tragedy”
