You can tell when a writer is good at what they do, but how exactly do they do it? At Word Works, you can watch the process of genius unfold as writers give craft talks on a certain element of writing they've mastered, along with close readings of their own work. After, the writers will be interviewed by a notable editor, writer, or critic.

There are six writers coming for the 2013-14 inaugural Word Works season. To find out who they are and how to get tickets, check out the event page here!
