Through "The Power of Words," the 2017 Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference will present the impact of writing in its simplest form and show how the words we use can have a lasting and transformative effect on the world around us in politics, culture, science, economics, sports, the arts and more.
Even in a world where pictures, videos and sounds are creating buzz through social media platforms, it is the power of words, the ability to craft a narrative and tell a story that provides the context, the depth and understanding that helps inform and engage us.
Speakers will demonstrate how communications and writing can dramatically shape our perceptions – and knowledge of the past, the present and our future.
The Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference is where aspiring and established storytellers, reporters, photographers and narrative non-fiction writers from all walks of life learn, engage and network with the nation's best authors journalists, editors and agents through workshops, seminars and keynotes.
