Reading and Community Writing Workshop: Dr. Daniel Hoyt

Reading and Community Writing Workshop: Dr. Daniel Hoyt

Pratt Community College will host Dr. Daniel Hoyt on Nov. 20 from 3-5 p.m. in the Delmar Riney Art Gallery. PCC Students as well as members of the community are invited to attend this free reading and workshop.
 
Dr. Hoyt teaches fiction writing and literature at Kansas State University. He will read from his new novel This Book Is Not For You, winner of Dzanc Books Prize for Fiction, before leading a writing workshop. Participants will be welcome to express themselves through essays, poems, letters, memoirs, fiction—any way they want. The workshop is designed to be creative and fun!
 
The Community Writing Workshop is part of a statewide series that celebrates 100 years of the Pulitzer Prizes and the life of William Allen White. In 1922, the Emporia Gazette editor wrote “To An Anxious Friend,” an impassioned defense of freedom of speech during trying times. For his editorial, he became the first Kansan to be awarded the prestigious Pulitzer Prize.
