The Writing Institute at 45 Wrexham Road on the Sarah Lawrence College campus is holding an open house on September 11 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 for prospective students to hear faculty members describe their courses, meet other writers and ask questions. Lunch will be served, and students who wish to meet with the staff of the Writing Institute will be able to speak one-to-one about their writing and which courses would be most useful in helping them reach their goals. Sally Koslow, author of the novel Pink Slips, and Sarah Goodyear, author of View from a Burning Bridge, both faculty members, will also be reading their work. To RSVP or for more information, please contact Nadeen Thomas at 914-395-2205 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Writing Institute has provided adults an opportunity to improve their skills and become part of a community of writers for over two decades. Classes run in two 11-week terms, one in the fall and one in the spring ranging from poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir writing, and children's literature. Workshops meet weekly in two-hour sessions, which are held during day and evening hours and on Saturdays. Occasionally, readings and special programs related to publishing or other topics of interest to writers are offered. Unique courses for the fall of 2007 include short stories, oral history and food writing.
