Writing Industry Roundtable coming to Iowa City


The Tuesday Agency Presents: Writing Industry Roundtable

Mission Creek Festival literary lineup
Wednesday, April 3 at 5 p.m.
Brix Cheese Shop & Wine Bar
(209 N. Linn Street)

Craving some mid-Mission brain food? Iowa City-based lecture group Tuesday Agency (a full-service lecture agency representing the likes of Colson Whitehead, Ann Patchett, Khaled Hosseini, Jon Ronson, and many more) is serving up slices of literary genius, with extra cheese.

Head to Brix Cheese Shop & Wine Bar as Trinity Ray hosts industry experts to discuss the ways of the writing world. Pour and hear more from editors Janaka Stucky of Black Ocean and Roxane Gay of [PANK] Magazine.

Black Ocean, based out of Boston, New York, and Chicago, promotes artists through book releases, parties, concerts, exhibitions, and other celebrations around the country.
[PANK] Magazine delivers your monthly dose of experimental poetry and prose.

Arrive chatty (and thirsty) to get literal at the roundtable. The crew talks writing, publishing and public sphere in a free community event as a part of Mission Creek’s literary lineup. The conversation starts at 5:00 p.m.
