EWU Career Services is sponsoring a panel of six writers who have used their literary background and skills to catapult them into various careers. Moderated by Career Advisor and MFA alum, Aileen Keown Vaux, the panel will focus on practical advice for those hoping to put their literary arts degree to good use, and also how to snag a career in the literary arts with an educational background in another field.
