Next Event

26 SEP


We are excited about a few things for this PK. First, we are moving venues to the newly renovated and reopened Ice House on Main. Second, we have an amazing lineup. Third, we are having PK Bryan's first themed event. Our theme will be about writing. All of our presenters are writers themselves, and will talk, for the most part, about you becoming one of them. Here is what they will be presenting in their own words: 

Christine Brown

A Year on the Shelf

What goes on at a publishing house? What separates an academic press from a commercial one? We’ll explore how books get published and why university presses are vital to a college community by examining a year in the life of Texas A&M University Press.


Pam Wiley

Creativity Found 

Is creativity only for the Shakespeares? The Michaelangelos? The Mozarts? A miniscule slice of humanity? No! It’s for each of us, in each of us. Join me as we explore creativity in the ordinary.


Teri Metcalf

How to Write a Memoir 

Based on her own writing experiences, Teri will provide some basic tips on how you can write your memoir.


Dorian Martin

Recovering from a Long Stay in the ICU -- (I)ntensive (C)reativity (U)ntapped 

What happens when you suffer from burnout and lose your creative spark? Can that imaginative spirit ever return? I'll share lessons learned from my own extended stay in the ICU on how you can successfully regain your creativity.
