Can you live in Brooklyn and learn to write? Will getting an MFA truly make you the writer you always wanted to be? Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop Founder Julia Fierro hosts a panel discussion about the differences between the lessons learned from living and writing in Brooklyn and those gained from an MFA. Joining her on the panel are Alexander Chee (Queen of the Night, forthcoming from HMH), Rob Spillman (editor of Tin House), Hannah Tinti (founder and editor of One Story), and Jessica Loudis (critic and freelance writer) to offer their take.
