The College of the Florida Keys continues its 2022 VIP Series with “Writing About Key West.” The presentation will be led by poet, author, and CFK English faculty member Dr. Emily Weekley. Most people are inspired by where they live, but this is especially true in Key West. This lecture will discuss what it is about such a place that inspires narrative, tone, and imagery, as well as some of the challenges one encounters when writing about Key West. Join Dr. Emily Weekley, to consider what the benefits and dangers are of writing about place, as well as how a writer might get started in writing regionally.
In its eighth season, The College of the Florida Keys’ VIP Series presents new opportunities to educate, entertain, and enrich our community. The 2022 CFK VIP Series features speakers and performers of local, regional, and national prominence to share their visions, ideas, and perspectives on an array of topics. Three evening events will be held in the College’s Tennessee Williams Theatre in 2022.
Tickets are $5 at the door; admission is free for CFK and Monroe County School District students.
