How I Write
A Conversation with Deondra Rose and Jennifer Ahern-Dodson
Join us for a conversation between Deondra Rose and Jennifer Ahern-Dodson about how Rose approaches her writing. This event is part of the How I Write series, in which Jennifer Ahern-Dodson talks with working writers across disciplines about their writing lives. What does it look like when they sit down to write? What sustains them in large projects? How do they overcome writing obstacles? When do they find the most joy in their work? Invited guests discuss a range of writing topics, including organizing and managing projects, generating ideas, cultivating creativity, balancing writing research/teaching/mentoring/ administrative commitments, the role of peer review and community support for their work.
