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, and one faculty member. All readings take place in the Bender Room at 5:30 pm on Tuesdays. For more information, please contact the 2015-16 Works in Progress: Creative Writing Curator Shiloh Rebecca Jines at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Critical Works in Progress: Scholarly Writing
All MA students are invited to present drafts of their scholarly writing and research projects before an audience. Students are welcome to present conference type papers, lessons, or projects to an audience of students and faculty members with time for a Q&A afterwards.
