9:00-10:15 AM (S118) Urban and Rural: Writing about Poverty

(Luanne Smith,  Michael Gills,  Troy Wilderson,  Stephanie Powell Watts,  Francine Rodriguez)

While class is often the backdrop to a story rather than the main point, writing about poverty is often compartmentalized. Grit Lit, Street Lit, Kmart fiction, even noir, there seems to be a place to put this work rather than actually looking at it as writing about the human condition. This panel brings together prose writers from rural and urban settings to discuss commonalities, differences and the bigger picture when class is a major factor in the work.
