Summer Writers Institute 2018
The New York State Summer Writers Institute has returned to Skidmore.
Each summer during the month of July, the Writers Institute moves its program to the Skidmore College campus in Saratoga Springs, NY, for a series of creative writing courses and free public readings. This month-long program features courses in poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Students may enroll for either two week blocks or for the entire four week season. For more information, click here.
Join Siri Hustvedt and Paul Auster on July 19 for "Fiction & Non-Fiction Reading".
The Summer Writers Institute offers courses for undergraduate and graduate credit, as well as noncredit courses. An extraordinary staff of critically-acclaimed, award-winning authors serve as Institute faculty members. Standard three-hour class meetings, three days each week, are supplemented by a series of Tuesday and Thursday afternoon discussions with visiting writers and other special events. Other distinguished writers-in-residence read book-length poetry or nonfiction manuscripts and offer advice for revisions and eventual publication submissions (additional fees charged). The program also offers public readings by visiting and staff writers Monday through Friday evenings. Weekend programs include publishing symposia, panel discussions, and student readings.
