Writing Big Ideas

  • Nashville Public Library 615 Church Street Nashville, TN, 37219 United States (map)

Have you ever wanted to write about a big, important topic, but didn't know where to start? In this workshop, we'll look at examples of "Exhibit Essays," where an author uses a specific and approachable "exhibit" in order to talk about something bigger and deeper. Then we'll try using "exhibits" to tackle big ideas in our own writing.

SLANT workshops are intended for students in grades 9 - 12. We meet in StudioNPL on the third floor of the Nashville Public Library. This is a free event open to students from any area, but workshop seating is limited, so please click to RSVP. If you sign up for an event and find that you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that someone else has the opportunity to participate.
