In celebration of yesterday’s grand news that Jennifer Egan won the National Book Critics Circle Award for “A Visit from the Goon Squad” (read. it.), I am finally posting information here about the inaugural Summer Writers Lab at the Brooklyn campus of Long Island University. I’m the assistant director of the program, and we’re working like dogs to make sure it’s a fascinating three days of fiction immersion, filled with death-defying feats of literary greatness. Egan is among the wonderful guest writers who will be leading fiction workshops, and she’s in great company– Marlon James and Gabriel Cohen are also master teachers. Rick Moody, Wesley Stace, and Jessica Hagedorn appear, too. Time to flex those muscles and refill those ink wells.
