AWP 15: I Can Change; I Can Change: Transformation on the Page

Auditorium Room 2, Level 1 
Friday, April 10, 2015
1:30 pm to 2:45 pm


"I can almost always tell immediately that what I’m looking at is a moment of transition in someone’s life." The moment that Russell Banks is describing can be vital to a story. Some would argue that it's the reason readers turn the page. This panel will explore the question: how does a writer discover that moment of transition? From James Joyce's epiphany, to the questions of character desire and conflict, how did these authors find that illuminated moment of change?
