Inter*Mester in Creative Writing
During the first week of Inter*Mester, Creative Writing students worked with novelist Brittani Sonnenberg, author of "Home Leave," on the importance of cultural identity and place in their writing, as well as how to use personal experience as fodder for their creative work. She led them in exercises that helped them reflect on these issues.
During the second week of Inter*Mester, Leslie Tye, instructor of creative writing and motion picture arts, and Kyle Novy, instructor in the singer-songwriter program, are leading creative writing and singer-songwriting students in a collaboration that focuses on the musicality of language. The collaboration will culminate this Friday with each group performing an original composition.
Coming up in January and February, the Writing House will host readings by guest writers Brittany Cavallaro (an Interlochen Arts Academy alum), essayist Megan Stielstra, and poet Kazim Ali. Stay tuned to the Creative Writing division blog for more information on these exciting writers.
