Readers Write

A Round Table with The Sun Magazine
Led by Assistant Editor Derek Askey

The Sun, an ad-free magazine founded in 1974 with more than seventy thousand subscribers, includes in each monthly issue Readers Write: a section where readers candidly discuss their experiences in response to a wide array of topics, such as “Divorce,” “The Refrigerator,” and “First Impressions.” You don’t need to be a professional writer; writing style isn’t as important as thoughtfulness and sincerity.

In this interactive round table, Sun assistant editor Derek Askey will discuss the Readers Write section and share advice for being published. In response to Readers Write prompts, attendees will put pen to paper and, if desired, share their work in a comfortable, supportive environment. A Q&A session will cap off this gathering.

The event will be hosted in partnership with the Iowa Writers’ House. The Writers’ House is an Iowa-based literary organization providing writing workshops and connections for writers, readers, editors, and all those who believe in the power of words.
