39th Annual Summer Writers Program begins

Hofstra University's English Department and Creative Writing Program present the 39th Annual Summer Writers Program, which begins on July 8. Intensive courses in short fiction will be offered as part of Hofstra University’s 39th Annual Summer Writers Program to be held from July 8 to 19, 2013. This event is sponsored by Hofstra’s English Department and its Creative Writing Program. To register and for more information call Professor Richard Pioreck in the Department of English at 516-463-0258.

This Summer Writers Program, now in its 39th year, operates on the principle that true writing talent may be developed, nurtured and encouraged by writer-in-residence mentors. Through instruction, discussion, criticism and free exchange among the workshop participants, writers begin to find their voice and their style. The workshops provide group and individual sessions for each writer.

The Summer Writers Program includes guest speakers, and exposure to award-nominated and winning authors. Often, agents, editors and publishers make presentations during the program, and authors and students read from published work and works in progress. These presentations offer additional opportunities to meet informally with participants, master writers and guest speakers.

Courses are offered concurrently from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. each day and may be taken on a noncredit or credit (graduate or undergraduate) basis. Non-credit participant tuition is $650 for the two-week, 10-session course. Students wishing to take the program for course credit should contact Professor Pioreck at the number above for more information.
