The Lawrence Writers’ Collective, Bathtub, aims to unify graduate students within the K.U. creative writing programs and connect them to writers and artists within the community at large through words and beer. Through participation in the annual A.W.P. conference, literary festivals, ongoing writers’ exchanges with other programs, art shows, and reading series featuring local writers, the collective raises public awareness for both the K.U. M.F.A. program and the Lawrence writing community. Other important things include general displays of bad-ass-ness and kickass dance moves, preferably ones that reference robots.
Most importantly, the writer’s collective gives writers in Lawrence a common voice and a unified front for action both within and outside of Kansas. Word.
