Writer's Symposium - Chris Hedges
Hedges has written for more than 20 years on wars around the world -- in Central America, the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans, and he won the Pulitzer Prize with the New York Times for his coverage of global terrorism. His provocative books, however, have given him even higher acclaim. They include War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning; American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America; I Don't Believe in Atheists; Losing Moses on the Freeway; and his most recent, The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress.

Writer’s Symposium by the Sea, to be held February 27-29, 2012, is an annual event designed to inspire both the writer and the reader. The evening interviews, conducted by symposium founder Dean Nelson, feature lively conversations about the stories behind the author’s stories. The audience gets to eavesdrop on these exchanges and even interact with the writer during a Q&A session that follows. Specialized afternoon workshops, conducted by published writers, provide tips and insight into the writing process. You are invited to join us and listen in on what some of today’s cutting edge writers have to say!
