Pen to Periodical: Fall Writing with Charles Higginson

Students in this fall’s LAC class in nonfiction magazine writing will get a rare opportunity. In addition to the instructor, Charles Higginson, five local experts in the magazine game will visit to share their insights.

Visitors will include Nathan Pettengill, editor of Lawrence Magazine, Kelly Gibson, editor of Manhattan Magazine, and writers Katherine Dinsdale, Mary Gage, and Fally Afani Ruzik, also an editor and publisher. They’ll answer questions and share their varied experiences, giving the class an unusually clear look at the profession.

As a bonus, Nathan has agreed to consider students’ work for publication in Lawrence Magazine.


The class, titled “Pen to Periodical,” is enrolling now!

It will meet Mondays, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., for nine weeks, starting Sept. 10.
