F150, Oregon Convention Center, Level 1
Friday, March 29, 2019
4:30 pm to 5:45 pm


Five cross-genre and multimedia authors discuss hybrid forms in a panel that takes a hybrid structure. Panelists spend 30 minutes talking about their own moves toward hybrid/nontraditional forms of writing, then each presents the work of one hybrid artist who inspires them. Artists presented by each panelist will be in attendance and stand from the audience to share their work in person.
