Our summer 2021 workshops take on a new dimension this year. Entirely online, they are designed to fit more easily into writers’ daily lives, all while providing the stimulating and supportive experience that writers seek from Kenyon Review. Three different options are available for each genre, during both sessions (June and July):
The Finn Workshop*: The most rigorous, interactive option, the Finn Workshop is ideal for writers seeking an intensive, small-group experience supplemented by an individualized, one-on-one meeting with the instructor. This option also includes small group conversations with visiting editors and exclusive green room access to special guest authors.
The Bexley Workshop*: This option provides the rigor of the small-group workshop combined with opportunities to interact with a community of writers, through open mic sessions and the writers cafe, a communal online space for writing in the company of others.
The Rosse Event Series: The most flexible option, the Rosse Event Series provides enrichment and insights through readings and conversations with faculty (including Kaveh Akbar, David Baker, Angie Cruz, Geeta Kothari, Dinty W. Moore, Carl Phillips, Natalie Shapero, Nancy Zafris, and more). Participants can experience the events synchronously or access them asynchronously until September 1.
*Note: Participants in the Finn and Bexley Workshops have access to the entire Rosse Event Series.
Our faculty members are talented writers and teachers of national renown. They have advanced degrees in creative writing and are accomplished, active members of the literary community.
