Buddhist Youth Writers Symposium at Nalanda West

Hi gang,
I am contemplating putting together a conference at Nalanda West in 2008 that would bring together published authors (in many different media) from a diverse variety of Buddhist traditions in America. They would also all be under 40 years old.
Please give me feedback about what you think about this idea, and I'd love to hear any suggestions you have to make it be creative, innovative, engaging, and inspiring.
Please also suggest anyone you'd like to see, hear, and meet.
Best wishes,
Nick

I think that's a great idea, Nick!

Do you think a panel on "Engaged Buddhism" might be worthwhile?

Thanks,
Christopher

Great idea Nick! I think this would go over well not only with many Sangha members, but also w/ the Seattle community at large, since such a huge portion of the population here is mid 20s-late 30s, and interested in Buddhism and meditation. I'd love to help out w/setting this up.

PS - I 2nd Christopher's idea about an Engaged Buddhism panel...

Sounds like a great idea. The BuddhistGeeks.com crew (myself and Ryan) would be very interested in such an event.
