Please email me at your earliest convenience your proposals for workshops, lectures, or any other events you may have in mind. Featured at the January residency will be readings and master classes by our Housatonic Book Award winners Reginald Dwayne Betts (poetry) and M. O. Walsh (fiction). Jane Cleland will offer a workshop in Professional Writing Job Opportunities, and Nick Mamatas will offer a workshop entitled “What is Interesting about Texts” that focuses on writing critically about creative work.
At the August residency wrap-up meeting, students expressed preference for hands-on, active workshops and asked for more workshops that are practically oriented (writing magazine pitches, publishing and editing business, grant writing for writers and programs, for just a few possible examples). Workshops will be offered between 1/3 and 1/7.
