<p>Distinguished writers discuss the craft and strategy of writing to change minds&mdash;and the world.</p> <p>In each session, renowned writers join academic leaders from across the university in spirited conversation to examine the art of writing for public audiences.&nbsp;From sentence-level analyses of craft, to wider discussions of how a specific piece of writing addresses critical issues of the day, such as&nbsp;incarceration, climate change, and refugee crises, the sessions share tactics and tools to produce compelling and persuasive storytelling.&nbsp;As a result, participants learn to think like professional writers&mdash;and to build specific skills necessary for their work to reach national and international audiences.&nbsp;</p> <p>Featuring&nbsp;<strong>Eric Hayot</strong>,&nbsp;Distinguished Professor of Comparative Literature and Asian Studies, College of the Liberal Arts, Penn State University. Moderated by&nbsp;<strong>Sarah Cole</strong>,&nbsp;Parr Professor of English and Comparative Literature; Dean of Humanities, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Columbia University</p> <p>Reading:&nbsp;<a href="https://fas.columbia.edu/files/fas/content/Hayot%20-%20Getting%20Started..." target="_blank">A Series of Introductions: Selected Excerpts from Public Writers</a></p> <p>RSVP here:&nbsp;https://sps.columbia.edu/events/series-introductions-selected-excerpts-p...
