A chance to study writing in Paris this summer

Creative Writing Workshop
at the Paris American Academy
July 1st through the 28th, 2010

For the sixth year running, I’ll be teaching an intensive, month-long creative writing workshop at the Paris American Academy. College credit is available for this hands-on English-language writing program, which includes courses in:

In addition to taking classes and amassing writing portfolios, students will participate in one-on-one critiques with professional writers (including myself), give readings in Parisian bookshops, and receive "survival" French lessons. Other instructors include O. Henry Award-winning author and playwright John Biguenet, and novelist Lauren Grodstein.

Between classes and tutorials, there will be ample time to experience the city, attend cultural events, visit museums, learn history, take day-trips to the countryside, read books, hang out in cafes, dance by the Seine, and make friends from around the world. It’s not cheap by vagabonding standards, but students who’ve taken the course in the past will attest that it’s a great value!

For more information, including costs, course descriptions and testimonials from past students, click my Paris American Academy page here.

To receive an application, email an inquiry to info@pariswritingworkshop.com.

The Paris American Academy is located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, on the rue Saint Jacques, a block from the Luxembourg Gardens, and less than a mile from the Seine and Notre Dame cathedral.
