New York Writers Studio at Hill-Stead
3-day workshop with Philip Schultz
Following on the success of Tony Hoagland's "Five Powers of Poetry" workshop in 2012, Hill-Stead will again offer a teacher workshop during the Sunken Garden Poetry Festival. Pulitzer Prize winner Philip Schultz will lead a three-day introduction to his Writers Studio Method, a brand new format the poet is eager to bring to Hill-Stead. The workshop will culminate with a reading by Schultz, the second in the 2013 summer series.
Philip Schultz a well-known poet, fiction writer and educator, has been teaching creative writing for nearly 40 years. He founded The Writers Studio in 1987 after spending four years as the director of New York University's graduate creative writing program. Mr. Schultz has taught undergraduate and graduate fiction, poetry, literature, and craft classes at Tufts University, Kalamazoo College, University of Massachusetts at Boston, Columbia University and New York University. In addition to several collections of poetry, including Failure (winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize), he has also published a memoir entitled My Dyslexia (Norton, 2011), in which he recounts his difficulties with the language disability, and his struggles to overcome it.
