“Breaking Silences” on February 20, 2018

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a professional development seminar for artists and other creative people on Tuesday, February 20, from 5:30-7:00 PM at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. Join us as we welcome Marilyn Kallet!

“Breaking Silences” means pushing past obstacles to get our best writing done. Writers can fall silent for many reasons, some of which date back to childhood, some are more mechanical (i.e. too much else to do in a day). Our workshop will encourage writers to begin or continue composing work that each of us really wants to explore. This workshop will help us defy the censor and other obstacles, in order to return to our own voices.

Please confirm your spot in the workshop via credit card payment here. The presentation fees are:

  • $5 for members of the Arts & Culture Alliance
  • $8 for non-members
  • $63 for a new membership + workshop
