Loving ChatGPT as a Writer and Salon Host

May 22, 2023 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

How are you as a writer feeling about AI's newest innovation, ChatGPT? In this salon, host Crystal Duan will ~chat~ with her fellow writers about how we can make peace with ChatGPT, how we use ChatGPT to make ourselves better writers, and the existential questions raised with using this.

A friend recently said “what AI can’t replace is the Personal Essay.” I — Crystal — think this is true. But what can it replace then?

Part discussion, part interesting exercise, Crystal will run a salon to see if ChatGPT can replace her as a host, and as a writer. She will use ChatGPT to run discussion questions for this salon, and compare and contrast her actual responses with what ChatGPT has said, and participants are welcome to read the same thing!

She will then also write a Substack about this with ChatGPT and send her findings to participants.

Come to this salon to talk AI and writing. If you’re wondering about:

  1. If you’ll be out of a job as a writer
  2. If ChatGPT is “ethical” to use for writing (answer is probably both yes and no)
  3. How ChatGPT even works and how it can help you be a writer
  4. What the history of AI + writing (aka prev. renditions of ChatGPT) is

Then let’s chat about all of this!
