Creative Writing at The New School

Thanks to the cooperation of the National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) and The School of Writing at The New School, as well as the tireless efforts of our students and faculty, we are able to provide interviews with each of the NBCC Awards Finalists for the publishing year 2014.

Meredith Russo, on behalf of the The School of Writing at The New School and the NBCC, interviewed Alexandra Schwartz about her work as a critic.
