Abstract: 
This discussion will concern the role of the writer as not only an activist but within a directly revolutionary role. The speakers will present historic and contemporary writers movements as well as a vision for a revolutionary writers coalition to engage in literary, performance and street-heat activism against the hard-Right agenda of the Trump Administration and the neo-fascist, global capital movement associated with it.
