Those who can…TEACH, Sponsored by WITS Alliance

Rooms 335-336, Summit Building, Seattle Convention Center, Level 3
Friday, March 10, 2023
9:00 am to 10:15 am


The panelists assembled have all been in the role of teaching artists while simultaneously building their body of work as professional writers and poets. They will share their experience of how working with students as a teaching artist evolved their own relationship to writing. We will hear excerpts from our panelists’ work as well as student pieces as we explore the relationship between the writer and the student.


Peter Markus has taught with InsideOut Literary Arts for 27 years. In that time he has published seven books, among them a novel, Bob, or Man on Boat, a book of stories, We Make Mud, a book of nonfiction, Inside My Pencil, and most recently a book of poems, When Our Fathers Return to Us as Birds.
