March 28, 2019 AWP Portland, 9:00-10:15 a.m., A107-109, Oregon Convention Center, Level 1, “Writing the Transcendent,” panel with Courtney Sender, moderator, Goldie Goldbloom, Rahul Kanakia, and Yehoshua November. In our most enduring literature, the reader often experiences something ungraspable: a sudden sense of loss or delight or elevation, just beyond the realm of conscious reckoning. In this panel, we call it transcendence, and ask: What is that feeling, anyway? How do you write toward it? What's the relationship between the divine, the inspirational, the science fictional or fantastical? In this panel, five diverse writers of the numinous and otherworldly will discuss the deep mysteries of writing.
