Creative Writing at The New School

The New School Writing Program set up shop in Seattle, Washington for the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) Conference 2014.

  • On Thursday, LIT Magazine launched issue #25 at Office Nomads. Magazine contributors read alongside the Nomads to a great crowd.
  • On Friday, The Writing Program hosted SHOWSTOPPER, a party showcasing the Vogue Workshop devised by Public Engagement Fellow, Riggio Student, and 12th Street Editor-in-Chief Ricky Tucker. Riggio student Ari Spool was the MC for the evening, and the party was a great success.
  • Throughout the conference, The New School students, faculty, and staff visited with prospective students, current students, alumni, friends, and neighbors from across the country and around the world.  Meanwhile, The New School faculty and alumni participated in 18+ conference panels (by our count), and The New School alumni were represented by numerous presses, magazines, and reading series around the conference and the city.

Here are just a few of our favorite images of the conference and festivities:
