The Creative Writing Program is excited to announce John Reed will be teaching a multi-genre workshop at this year's Summer Writers Colony.

This literary arts workshop will cover narrative storytelling (prose or script), poetry, hybrid forms, and essay writing/nonfiction.  Classes will consist of: workshopping; writing prompts; sharing exercises; and instruction and discussions about creative structures, forms and work strategies.  We’ll have three to four guests in to talk to us about different creative approaches, and to demystify publishing.  The course is designed to introduce students to a spectrum of creative possibilities, and to encourage new projects--as well as to strengthen the revision process for projects currently underway.

John is the author of the novels A Still Small Voice (Delacorte Press/Delta), The Whole (Simon & Schuster /Pocket/MTV Books), the SPD bestseller, Snowball's Chance (Roof Books/Melville House), All The World's A Grave: A New Play By William Shakespeare (Penguin Books/Plume), and Tales of Woe (MTV Press); Free Boat: Collected Lies and Love Poems (C&R Press). 

Spots are still available in our fiction tract with Sharon Mesmer, and in Nonfiction with Madge McKeithen.
