Due to extraordinary demand, the 2013 seminar, “Writers on Writers,” has expanded to include two sessions. Session One will take place January 10-13, 2013; it has been sold out since early March. Session Two will take place the following weekend, January 17-20, 2013; registration is open now.
Confirmed authors for Session Two include Geoff Dyer, who won the National Book Critics Circle Award this year for his essay collection Otherwise Known as the Human Condition; Edmund White, whose biography of Jean Genet remains the definitive study of one of the most notorious figures of twentieth-century literature; former United States Poet Laureate Billy Collins; and Robert D. Richardson, the acclaimed biographer of America’s three central writers: Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and William James. Additional panelists will be announced in the coming days and weeks.
Scholarships are available for teachers, librarians, students, and writers who can demonstrate financial need. The application period is open now; there is a new priority deadline this year of June 30. Click here for more information.
