Join the ranks of Zadie Smith, Jhumpa Lahiri, Toni Morrison, and EPL's featured author (and mother of five sons) Jennifer Quist as a parent who writes in spite of a life packed to bursting with child-rearing. No room of one's own? No problem--at least, no problem we can't learn to work around, laugh off, cry out, or pillage for writing inspiration. Come swap war stories and learn a little something from Jennifer's successes and failures in writing over, under and through her sons' childhoods. Feel free to bring 300 to 400 words of your own writing to share at our open mic at the end of the night.
