Presented by 1888 Center at LAB, The, Costa Mesa CA

Apr 18 2018
Why We Write: Roadshow - Costa Mesa

We are taking our Why We Write project on the road with an Orange County Tour!

1888's Why We Write: Roadshow highlights creative purpose and necessity. Taking submissions from across the globe, this essay series stands as a manifesto to why writers put pen to paper. Each essay is less than 500 words, and everyone is invited to submit and share their work. Why We Write essays will be performed by invitation or through actors for international authors who can’t make the trip.

Events will feature author readings from curated essay submissions. Each event will be recorded
