The 2008 Callaloo Creative Writing Workshops
College Station, Texas
A project of the literary journal Callaloo, designed to assist new and developing writers by providing intensive and individual instruction in the writing of fiction and poetry. Students and faculty will work and live together for the duration of the two-week workshops, as well as meet in groups for three hours each day and in individual conferences when necessary.
The poetry workshops will admit nine applicants, and the fiction workshops will admit only six. The faculty will give readings for the general public, and the workshop members will celebrate the last two evenings with small audiences comprised of workshop participants and invited guests.
The workshops, along with required books and supplies, are free to all participants, but participants will be responsible for their travel and board.
