Creative Writing Community Workshop, Spring 2022

The Naslund-Mann Graduate School of Writing is offering a 3-day community workshop May 22-24 led by Lynnell Edwards that offers participants  the opportunity to study and write with our award-winning faculty and experience what our residency is like. As a participant, you’ll share a worksheet of creative writing in your chosen genre (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, playwriting) and also take advantage our May residency events, including lectures on the craft of writing, the writing life, and literary history; a field trip to the Louisville Botanical Gardens to inspire our writing; and a reading by New York Times columnist Margaret Renkle.

Writers interested in applying send the following as Word document attachments to schoolofwriting@spalding.edu

1.      Personal statement outlining, briefly, your writing experience and goals (maximum 300 words).
2.      A writing sample consisting of one of the following:
·         2–3 poems (no more than five pages total)
·         5–7 pages of prose (creative nonfiction or literary fiction)
·         Up to ten pages of a play

Please include your name and email address clearly on each document.

Applications are due Friday, April 22; participants will be notified of acceptance on or before April 26. If accepted, participants submit an additional piece of writing (more information about that with the acceptance) they wish to be discussed during the workshop by May 5. The payment is due May 5.
