The 2017 Writer's Symposium by the Sea begins Tuesday night at Point Loma Nazarene University. The theme of this year's symposium is writing that resonates.

"Everybody we're bringing in this year has a message that's going to linger with the audience for a long time," said Dean Nelson, symposium organizer.

U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky will perform at the symposium Tuesday accompanied by the Point Loma Nazarene University Jazz Combo.

Pinsky published his seventh collection of poetry, "At The Foundling Hospital," in October.

Pinsky and Point Loma Nazarene University Jazz Combo musicians, drummer Steven Brown, pianist Matt Giles and bass player Evan Killeen, preview their performance Tuesday on Midday Edition.
