The Creative Writing Section develops two types of panels: 1) Reading Panels, where the panelists read their own creative works of poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction and 2) Writers Discussion Panels, where the panelists analyze, interpret, and discuss creative works by contemporary or past authors; significantly, the Section approaches these panel subjects primarily as writers: concerned with craft, author choices, how the work stands out or functions from a writer's perspective, understanding the structure of the work, how form matches content, how we can learn from the style or project of each book, how the work has influenced our own writing.
