Writing Workshop ~Notice~ April 28, 2011
The U.S. Embassy is bringing four American writers to Nepal as a part of the U.S. government sponsored International Iowa Writers program. In this connection, the Department of Languages and Mass Communication is going to host a lecture (1.30-2.30), with a closed group discussion/workshop (2.30-4.30pm) at the CV Raman Auditorium, Kathmandu University on April 28, 2011.
During the lecture (1.30-2.30 pm), the four writers will introduce contemporary American literature and provide an overview of literary traditions in the United States. After the lecture, the writers will hold individual sessions (2.30-4.30pm) on each of their specific literary areas.
The individual sessions will be on the following topics:
1. Poetry in mainstream media with Bob Holman
2. The Novel with Joshua Ferris
3. Poetry in American with Nathalie Handal
4. The Creative Writing Program with Christopher Merrill
I look forward to your presence, and hope to make this program a success. I truly believe the students will benefit from this interaction and encourage all participants to produce their own literary works that stand the test of time.
