Join us on May 1, 2011, (10am to 4pm) in celebrating writing at UCSC. As part of UCSC’s Day By The Bay celebrations, Humanities is hosting a selection of alumni writers – novelists, journalists, and screenwriters—coming together for a community event to focus on the joys and challenges of writing as a living, the business of writing, and trends for the future.

The day begins at 10am with a keynote speech by alumnus David Talbot founder of and best-selling author of Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years. Other writers participating in this event are: Susan Blackaby – children’s book author; David Ehrman – screenwriter; Charlie Haas – author; Claire Hoffman – freelance journalist; Robert Irion – freelance magazine journalist; Laurie King – author; Dan Pulcrano – CEO and Executive Editor, Metro Newspapers; Matt Skenazy – freelance journalist; and Gary Young – poet.


The day will conclude with a book faire and reception with the panelists.
