Emily Raboteau on the Craft of Writing

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Donnelley Film Theatre

Open to the public

/ Wednesday


What role can literary writers play in the fight against climate change? Some writers use their craft to bear witness to an increasingly unlivable world; others go further, not only addressing the connections between human activities and environmental catastrophe, but also taking action to change it, and compelling others to do the same. This craft talk will focus on how our work can make possible (or fail to make possible) ways of reimagining how we can evolve in a context of persistent natural disasters.
