Summer Writer’s Week 2011 at Manhattanville College (the grad school of my choice) will be EPIC! We’re kicking off things the right way by being in the New York Times online weekend issue and in the paper issue for Sunday. How awesome!? Our fabulous director, Karen Sirabian, is always on the hunt for the best writers to bring to campus. That type of diligence is what makes this program one of the best. Karen makes sure we have the right mentors and professors to teach us and train us on the necessity of discipline in our craft and the publishing world. Jennifer Egan along with a tons of other notable writers will be present during Summer Writers’s Week.
June 27th-July 1st is when the fabulous events of workshops (in Workshops in Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction, Children’s/YA, Alternative Media), editors, agent panels, readings, and more will take place on the quiet campus in Purchase, NY! If you live in the area it is NOT too late sign up. You can participate in the whole week or you can check out a few workshops and readings. Whatever fits in your schedule. Check out Mville’s site for more information, time schedules, and directions.
