Taking the Road Less Traveled to a Writing Life
Join us for a conversation with Graham School instructor Scott Lax about his unconventional path to a life of writing.
About the Event
Scott knew at age 16 that he wanted to be a writer. He was an American teenager in 1968 with the Vietnam war raging and the deaths of the Kennedys and Dr. Martin Luther King. Scott got his first taste of writing and editing as the founder of an alternative high school magazine. However, as life would have it, it would be another 24 years before the dream of becoming a writer would be realized.
Sales representative. Drummer. Landscaper. These are just a few of the roles Scott held before he made the decision to become a writer.
Join Writer’s Studio Instructor, Scott Lax for a conversation with Seth Green, Dean of the University of Chicago Graham School, about his unconventional path to a life of writing and his tips for successful storytelling.
