Overseas Writing Workshop

Student writing on balcony

Frequently, a group of students and faculty from the Nonfiction Writing Program travels to another country and spends several weeks participating in the Overseas Writing Workshop.  The Overseas Writing Workshop is entirely optional.  These excursions are led by various faculty members and are designed to introduce students to writers of nonfiction in other cultures, as well as other ways of interoperating the genre.

The next Overseas Writing Workshop will be a trip to Greece to trace the life and writing of Plutarch, the first true pioneer of the essay.
