On Writing

On Writing is a series of conversations with faculty and other advanced writers at Vanderbilt about their writing practices. Conversations examine writers’ eccentricities and the ways in which a given writer generates ideas, cultivates a style, and responds to various writing situations.

Fall 2015: “Writing Collectively and Writing for the Collective: The People’s Guide to Nashville”

Join the Editorial Team of the People’s Guide to Nashville, an alternative guide to Nashville rooted in an ethic of deep participation with the people who constitute the city. The guide is an educational tool about Nashville’s cultural, political, economic and social movements and is co-constructed with the people who have been a part of these efforts. We’ll discuss the challenges and joys of producing writing as a group!

Co-Sponsored by the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities
