Meeting Room A

Luqman-Dawson talks about the creative process while writing her award-winning novel.

The journey to publication for a debut novel is always filled with twists and turns, Freewater is no exception. Luqman-Dawson talks about how she was able to finish her novel while still carrying on with her life; how she was able to get unstuck while writing; and how she found support and advocates along the way.

This program is sponsored by the James Horton for the Arts Trust Fund.

Luqman-Dawson is the keynote speaker for the award ceremony of the It's All Write: Short Story Contest for Teens held at Eagle Ridge Middle School on Saturday, May 18, 4 p.m. Everyone is invited to come and celebrate these young writers.
