The Place for Writers produces two Works in Progress reading/talk series each semester, one in creative writing and another in scholarly writing. At either series, students present new works to an intimate audience of peers and faculty. Faculty also read and present from their most recent works in progress, encouraging a lively interaction between students and professors.
Works in Progress: Creative Writing
As part of their final year of study, MFA degree candidates have the opportunity to present their work. Each reading features three student readers, one faculty member, and, in partnership with the Community Teaching Project, one reader from Oakland School of the Arts. All readings take place in the Bender Room at 5:30 pm on Tuesdays. For more information, please contact the 2012–13 Works in Progress: Creative Writing curator is Audacious Wilson (email@example.com)
Fall 2012 dates: September 25, October 9, October 23, and November 27
Works in Progress: Scholarly Writing
All MA students are invited to present drafts of their scholarly writing and research projects before an intimate audience. One student or faculty member will present at each event, with time for a Q&A afterwards. All talks take place in Mills Hall 322 on Mondays from 12:20–12:50. For more information, please contact the 2012–13 Works in Progress: Scholarly Writing curator Housten Donham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
