Summer Writing Program 2022
June 12 - July 2
The Summer Writing Program (SWP) is a three-week convocation of students, poets, scholars, fiction writers, translators, performance artists, activists, Buddhist teachers, musicians, printers, editors, and others working in small-press publishing. In dialog with renowned practitioners, students engage in the composition of poetry, prose fiction, cross-genre possibilities, inter-arts, translation, and writing for performance. Participants work in daily contact with some of the most accomplished and notoriously provocative writers of our time, meeting individually and in small groups, so that both beginning and experienced writers find equal challenge in the program. The tradition emphasized is that of the “Outrider” lineage, a heritage of powerful scholarship and counter-poetics that operates outside the normative academic mainstream.
