Be a part of the history of writing and writers at The New School. From 1927 to 1931, the creative writing workshop evolved at The New School into what would become the first academic workshop in creative writing. In this signature workshop, students generate new material and read literature like writers. Special attention is paid to professional questions about publishing, collaboration, and building a life as an artist. Professor Salvatore, author of the story collection To Assume A Pleasing Shape (BOA Editions) and Books Editor at The Brooklyn Rail, works with students on developing their voices through in-class and weekly assignments that encourage experimentation and support a consistent writing practice. Students also write short stories or chapters of novels, considering within the workshop issues of craft and socially-engaged art-making.
