PEN: Next Steps: On College, Jobs, and Independence, an Event for Young Adults

Where: Westbeth Center for the Arts, Gallery, 57 Bethune St., New York City

The professional trajectory in publishing was once crystal-clear: graduate from college, learn the craft through an apprenticeship, and land a cushy gig. But decades of economic strain have considerably diminished opportunities for building a literary career. In this conversation, artists reassess the value of a college degree, once inexorably linked to success, and share the non-traditional ways they turned hobbies and personal interests into opportunities to cultivate their art, engage in the world, and hew a meaningful career.

With Leila Aboulela, Jennifer Bloom, Lillian Luterman, Ed Conlon, Carlos “Mare 139” Rodriguez, and others
