Creative Writing Workshop
May 16-28, 2004
(Click to see this year's faculty)

The Callaloo Creative Writing Workshops, a general project of the literary journal Callaloo, are designed to assist new and developing writers by providing intensive and individual instruction in the writing of fiction and poetry. Students and faculty will live and work 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 workshop will admit ten applicants, but the fiction workshops will admit only six. The faculty, visiting writers conducting the workshops, will give readings for the general public, and the workshop memebers 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.


Applicants should send samples of their work with a cover letter describing their interest in the workshops. Those applicants intersted in the poetry workshop should send no more than ten pages of poetry, and those who wish to enroll in the fiction workshop should send texts which do not exceed twenty double-spaced pages. Applicants will be evaluated on an on-going basis until the workshops are filled, but a waiting list will be maintained in the event of cancellations. Accepted applicants will be notified beginning April 1, 2004. Callaloo invites applications from students and non-students who are early in their writing careers-- that is, individuals who have published little or no creative writing are especially encouraged to apply. Address al applications to:
