Jack Kerouac School of
Disembodied Poetics

The Jack Kerouac School cultivates contemplative and experimental approaches to writing. Our esteemed faculty teach literary arts in innovative ways that foster both rigor and creative expansion. Students have numerous opportunities to work with invited guests during our events: Ginsberg Visiting Fellow, Scalapino Lecturer in Innovative Poetics, JKS Symposium, and What Where Series.

Another distinctive aspect of the curriculum is our internationally recognized Summer Writing Program, a four-week colloquium of JKS and visiting faculty who teach workshops, give lectures and readings, as well as mentor students in one-on-one conferences.

Graduates of our programs publish widely, teach in universities and abroad, establish small presses, work in arts administration, and have received numerous awards: NEA Fellowship, Fulbright, American Book Awards, PEN/Hemingway Award, and Next Generation Indie Book Award.
