Writing For Their Lives (WFTL) features writers and artists, for whom writing is a means of exploration and discovery. Writers read, and sometimes perform, their works--and engage in lively, probing conversations with University of Washington Bothell professors and you, our audience.
WFTL has sponsored over thirty readers, panels and special events. Past writers include Rebecca Brown, Dodie Bellamy, Bill Berkson, Charles Bernstein, Cris Cheek, Don Mee Choi, Paul Collins, Beverly Dahlen,
Kathleen Fraser, Suzanne Jill Levine, Steve McCaffery, Carol Rambo, Aaron Shurin, Leonard Schwartz, Maya Sonenberg, Lidia Yuknavitch, Lissa Wolsak, and Pamela Z.
