Writing and Responsibility
Fri 16 Feb 2007
In a world where literary scandals often end up in court, the issue of responsibility in writing has never been more important. NAWE member Carl Tighe will be delivering this talk at the University of Wales, Swansea, on Wednesday 21 February 2007.

Carl Tighe, Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Derby, is a novelist, short-story writer, poet, critic, cultural historian and commentator. Author of the recently published, ground-breaking study Writing and Responsibility, he will consider the public consequences of the private act of writing, and address such questions as: What is it that writers do? How are a writer's responsibilities compromised by commercial or political pressures, or by notions of tradition or originality? How does a writer's audience affect her/his responsibilities?

All are welcome. 4pm. Room 216, Keir Hardie Building. Organized with the support of Academi.
