Program Description

A BRAND NEW LITERARY TRADITION - THAT YOU HELP CREATE

Become a practitioner of a literary craft that takes risks, pursues obsessions, both bends and builds upon literary tradition, and draws readers into unique worlds. We believe that better readers make better writers – so get ready to crack open books that range from classic literary traditions to contemporary works hot off the presses. Push yourself even further with live audience readings, literary and journalistic publications, and post-workshop revisions.
