Summer Writing Program Faculty Invitation Policy

Each year, the Summer Writing Program receives numerous requests from people interested in joining our esteemed faculty. In the interest of transparency, we're providing the following information about how we invite faculty to teach during the SWP.

Professor Anne Waldman, Artistic Director of the SWP and co-founder of the Jack Kerouac School at Naropa, curates the Summer Writing Program and designs the program with certain themes in mind. These themes influence faculty invitations each summer. We also have commitments to some annual and bi-annual faculty members. Given the balancing act of themes and regularly invited guests, the visiting faculty slots are extremely specific. As a curator of writing programs for over forty years, Professor Waldman is uniquely qualified to work with the summer curriculum, regular faculty, and other luminaries.

While faculty are solicited to teach in the program, we are happy to receive faculty CVs and recommendations. It is, however, rare for such a person to be invited if his/her work and the quality of his/her teaching and poetics are not already known to Professor Waldman and the Summer Writing Program. This is not simply a poetry reading venue, but a rigorous educational environment.

Please direct all inquiries to the SWP office, and please refrain from contacting Professor Waldman directly with casual inquiries in social contexts or in professional venues outside Naropa. Many thanks for your understanding in this regard.
