Writers’ Institute announces workshops

The New York State Writers Institute Fellow and award-winning author James Lasdun will conduct two creative writing workshops for community writers during the spring 2014 semester.

Lasdun, a fiction and nonfiction writer, poet, and screenwriter, will offer two eight-week workshops: one on fiction writing, and one on poetry. The workshops are offered for non-credit and will be held at the University at Albany's uptown campus.

Admission to both workshops is based on the submission of writing samples. Complete information on the workshops and submission guidelines may be obtained by calling the Institute at 442-5620 or by visiting the Institute's website at: http://www.albany.edu/writers-inst/webpages4/programpages/workshop.html.
