Writing in the Galleries
Writers of all levels are invited to participate in this informal exploration of the Museum’s galleries as impetus to writing. Each session is led by a visiting writer/facilitator who begins with a conversation and prompts, partially inspired by works on view. Participants are free to write on their own and then reconvene as a group to share and comment on each other’s work. Please bring a journal or notebook, laptop, or tablet on which to write (analog or digital). Each program is open to 12 participants.
This series is organized by Sameer Pandya who teaches literature and creative writing in the department of Asian American Studies at UCSB. His book The Blind Writer was on the long list for the PEN Open Book Award.
